This paper presents a study in which 20 faculty members at 15 research institutions in the United States were interviewed to investigate their motivations and accomplishments in pursuing engaged scholarship. The authors report on the support received and the barriers encountered by the faculty in their engaged scholarship endeavors; this data is then linked to a discussion on how structures and leadership need to change for institutional policies and practices to effectively integrate engagement activities.
