While there is a long history of publicly engaged work in universities and colleges across the disciplines, it has been and still is inconsistently supported in the formal training of doctoral students.1 This guide aims to: (a) demonstrate the value of publicly engaged work; (b) give faculty, department chairs, administrators, and students concrete examples of how this work can be supported for graduate students; and (c) offer recommendations for framing and sustaining ethical engagements between student-researchers, supporting faculty, and community members. The guide explores a range of curricular and program innovations, from introducing graduate students to career pathways beyond the academy, to collaborative archival research with community partners, to incorporating land-based pedagogy in connecting and supporting Indigenous students.
