September Publication - Volume 19(3)


What do the Wright Brothers and our commitment to community-engagement scholarship have in common?  Lorilee Sandmann introduces JHEOE’s September publication by comparing Wilbur and Orville’s tenacity in building their “world-changing innovation” and the growth in scholarly literature on outreach and engagement.  We must continuously challenge ourselves to “start with the right questions” and “tenaciously seek answers” to create our best work.  In this issue of JHEOE, engagement and outreach scholars have asked important “why,” “how,” and “to what end” questions in peer-reviewed articles on generating social change through community-campus collaboration, the psychological sense of community and university mission as predictors of student social justice engagement, documenting practices and outcomes of Carnegie community engagement classified institutions, and more.
