A significant and growing number of universities across the country are pursuing the agenda of public and civic engagement and giving serious consideration to resultant faculty roles. Along with new university commitment come new definitions of scholarship, including the scholarship of engagement. The scholarship of engagement continues to emerge and expand as campuses manifest context-driven characteristics reflecting the correspondence between their notion of scholarship and their individual history, priorities, circumstances, and location. However, from its earliest definition as scholarship, engagement has presented challenges to higher education. This article presents work that is national in scope and that addresses these challenges by providing faculty with institutional models and resources to advance the documentation, evaluation, and review of the scholarship of engagement.
