We seek to make tangible progress in furthering UCLA’s Strategic Priorities for Global and Local Engagement. The purpose of this report is to share why recognizing community-engaged scholarship matters for UCLA and how UCLA can move forward. Based on national benchmarking and extensive consultation with UCLA College faculty, this report outlines the steps needed to address the evaluation of engaged scholarship. We define engaged scholarship, share models and practices from peer R1 universities for evaluating that scholarship, foreground faculty voices, and provide recommendations for integrating standards for engaged scholarship in academic personnel review.
