Volume 22(1), March 2018 Now Available


The Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement Volume 22(1), March 2018 is now available. This issue is especially “flavorful” with one of our most diverse collections of articles looking at community engage­ment from “boots on the ground” research studies to essays that dream of retooling higher education in ways that build upon the best practices and theories that engagement has to offer. For our first course, this issue opens with essays posing pro­vocative questions about ways university-community engagement can and should address global challenges and concerns in sustain­able and ethical ways. For our main course, a trio of research articles in this issue explore civic engagement across a spectrum of programs, activities, and community-based research. For a delicious treat, on occasion, JHEOE is very pleased to publish dissertation overviews, which are meant to highlight the work of emerging scholarly voices conducting research related to university-community engagement. We welcome these submis­sions from any discipline or area in the field of university-com­munity engagement, public scholarship, and the scholarship of engagement. The cherry on top of this issue of JHEOE once again features a number of book reviews that look at a wide range of issues through methods that put community engagement under the “microscope” to examine institutional implementation issues, or ask us to peer through a “crystal ball” that reveals a revolutionary future for universities building on community-engaged strategies.
