Community Engaged Scholarship Tenure and Promotion Repository

This repository contains resources demonstrating how community engagement and community engaged scholarship (CES) can be recognized and incentivized through faculty reward mechanisms, including tenure and promotion policies and practices.

In this repository,  you will find information about the various ways to make the case and create incentives for faculty to participate in CES, strategies to evaluate and assess CES, and examples of how policies have been designed at a range of institutional types to incorporate CES in to tenure and promotion guidelines.

The repository is designed to be useful for both faculty seeking to document their community engagement for the purposes of promotion and advancement, and higher education administrators interested in deepening their knowledge and understanding of how CES can be incentivized and rewarded through tenure and promotion policies.

If you have materials you would like to add, or think should be added to the repository, please contact Clayton Hurd (
