Over two decades have passed since Ernest Boyer in his 1996 The Scholarship of Engagement called on higher education institutions to be more responsive to the problems facing their wider communities. The evolution of his concept of a scholarship of engagement is evident at the many higher education institutions where the traditional triad reward system of teaching, research, and service has been extended to include service to the community. It is reflected globally in faculty members’ application of disciplinary knowledge and skills to address community
issues through outreach, public service, civic engagement, community engagement, participatory action research, and community development.
