Navigating the Boundaries of the Scholarship of Engagement at a Regional Comprehensive University

March 7, 2013


This study analyzes the translation of the Boyer scholarship model
(with an emphasis on the scholarship of engagement) into departmental
and college-level culture at a regional comprehensive
institution. Through an analysis of promotion and tenure documents,
the authors concluded that adoption of Boyer’s model was a semiradical
process, characterized by unique definitional, conceptual, and
logistical challenges that resulted in a diverse array of practices and
approaches across the university’s departments and colleges.
