Within the University, faculty and staff enrich the learning experience of Memphis students through participatory action research, service-learning, and internships.  Members of the U of M community also travel all over the country, lecturing and presenting at conferences in an effort to expand engaged scholarship throughout the broader academic field.  

Engaged Scholarship also requires that educators and students venture beyond the halls of academia to connect with residents and community stakeholders, all of whom play an equally integral role in the Engaged Scholarship process.
