What is Community Engagement Scholarship?
What Do We Mean by Community? Geography: (shared a physical place, such as neighborhood, city, or region) Identity: (shared race, gender, or other characteristics) Affiliation or interest : (shared a common set of values or concerns) Circumstances:(shared a common experience such as surviving a natural disaster or managing a specific disease) Profession or practice: (shared specific knowledge to occupation, skill, or trade) Faith: (shared belief system, customs, and religious or spiritual practice) Kinship: (shared relationships through family and/or marriage)

Engaged Research and Creative Activities Definition Engaged research and creative activities are associated with the discovery of new knowledge, the development of new insights, and the creation of new artistic or literary performances and expressions—in collaboration with community partners. Doberneck, D. M., Glass, C.R., & Schweitzer, J. H. (2010). From rhetoric to reality: A typology of publicly engaged scholarship. Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement 14(5), 5-35.

Engaged Teaching/Learning Definition Engaged teaching is organized around sharing knowledge with various audiences through either formal or informal arrangements. Types of engaged teaching vary by relationship among the teacher, the learner, and the learning context. Engaged teaching may be for-credit or not- for-credit, guided by a teacher or self-directed.

Engaged Service Definition Engaged service is associated with the use of university expertise to address specific issues (ad hoc or long-term) identified by individuals, organizations, or communities. This type of engagement is not primarily driven by a research question, though a research question may be of secondary interest in the activity. Doberneck, D. M., Glass, C.R., & Schweitzer, J. H. (2010). From rhetoric to reality: A typology of publicly engaged scholarship. Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement 14(5), 5-35.

MSU International Business Center Serving 1,945 companies and 23 educational institutions in Michigan since The map represents cities with companies and educational institutions served in Michigan since 2006 by the International Business Center in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. As a background, in the spirit of Michigan State University’s “worldgrant” focus along with President Obama’s National Export Initiative, the IBC has centered increased attention on helping U.S. businesses thrive in the global marketplace – with a particular emphasis on our home state of Michigan. Nationwide, since 2006 the MSU International Business Center has served 12,137 companies and 176 universities and educational institutions with training, development, assistance, research, and much more (and double those numbers since its founding in 1988). Given the nation’s increased focus on exporting since President Obama’s 2010 State of the Union speech in which he highlighted the National Export Initiative, we are delighted to be part of the international business and trade solution in Michigan and across the country. The International Business Center (ibc.msu.edu), started in 1988, has been designated as a National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education since IBC’s mission is to provide superior education, research, and assistance to businesses, public policy makers, academics, and students on international business and trade.ibc.msu.edu
