Centrality of Engagement at the University of Idaho

Priscilla Salant
Director, Office of Community Partnerships

Whitewater Room, Idaho Commons- 12:30 p.m.

With roots in Ernest Boyer’s 1990 signature work, Scholarship reconsidered: Priorities of the professoriate, engagement is a way of teaching and conducting research rather than a separate, siloed activity.  It means using outreach and collaborative partnerships to achieve learning outcomes and develop useful scholarship. Many of the university’s largest grant proposals were successful in part because of their strong engagement efforts.  Making engagement central to our teaching, research and outreach requires strong leadership, flexible administrative processes, and appropriate incentive structures.
