Balancing head and heart: The importance of relational accountability in community-university partnerships
In this paper, the authors reflect on a community-university research and program development project undertaken with Aboriginal people in Canada, and suggest that a “head and heart” approach was crucial to the project’s success. They explain how a “head and the heart” approach to engaged scholarship provides access to an ethical space where multiple worldviews are recognized and where the importance of relational accountability becomes evident. Finally, implications of this approach for engaged scholarship are examined.
