May 1, 2015

Engaged scholarship represents one way for making research relevant to organizational practitioners by bridging the gap between theory and practice.

This article explores the possibilities associated with engaged scholarship in three specific contexts: (1) theory-building and research, (2) pedagogy, teaching, and education, and (3) institutional opportunities and constraints as they relate to issues of tenure and promotion and creation of the engaged campus.
