An integrated model for advancing the scholarship of engagement: Creating academic homes for the engaged scholar

An integrated model is offered for the preparation of future faculty that addresses the transformation of institutions of higher education into supportive environments for the next generation of engaged scholars. Drawing on the knowledge bases of the scholarship of engagement, institutional change, preparing future faculty, the role of disciplinary associations, and promising practice for institutional engagement, the model provides a framework for approaches that would prepare individuals (primarily doctoral students and early career faculty) as learners of engagement while instigating and catalyzing institutions as learning organizations (Sandmann, Saltmarsh & O’Meara, 47). This model has implications for determining how the scholarship of engagement has transformed institutional culture and identity of universities, and whether this change truly signifies a shift in the dominant culture of higher education.
