Who Are We?
The Engaged Scholarship Committee (ESC) is a multidisciplinary group of faculty from departments across the University who support and practice engaged research and learning principles. The Committee currently sponsors several programs to support engaged scholarship: Engaged Scholarship Research Grants, Engaged Learning Fellows, Engaged Scholarship Mentors, Engaged Scholarship Conference Travel Grants, and a Community Partner Award.
Within the University, faculty and staff enrich the learning experience of Memphis students through participatory action research, service-learning, and internships. Members of the UofM community also travel all over the country, lecturing and presenting at conferences in an effort to expand engaged scholarship throughout the broader academic field.
