New Times Demand New Scholarship: Research Universities and Civic Engagement — A Leadership Agenda
This Leadership Agenda, published by Tufts University in 2006, describes the Research Universities Civic Engagement Network's (TRUCEN) rationale and philosophy and provides recommendations that outline why it is important for research universities to embrace and advance engaged scholarship as a central component of their activities and programs at every level — institutional, faculty, and student. The statement, endorsed by the entire group, argues that research universities’ exceptional faculty, students, financial resources, and research facilities position them to contribute to community change relatively quickly and in ways that will ensure deeper and longer-lasting commitment to civic engagement across higher education.
