Community-engaged scholarship is an inclusive term for various forms of research. Broadly defined, it “means connecting the rich resources of the university to our most pressing social, civic, and ethical problems” (Boyer, 1996). The key aspect of C-ES is sharing these resources through research – not “on” the community, but “with” the community. Community-engaged scholarship encompasses academic rigor and social justice through the reciprocal relationship between community and university. When conducting community-based participatory, there are different levels of engagement with the community partners. One model for understanding the depth of involvement is a spectrum of increased involvement: research done for the community, research done in the community, research done with the community and research done by the community. The level of engagement by the community may also be determined by the questions the discipline needs to answer through the research. At the community based participatory action research level (the highest level of direct community impact), the community helps interpret the data because of the community’s culture has implications for the interpretation of findings, language used, etc. Although there are different levels of engagement, community partners should be present to the research experience the entire time. With its long-standing programmatic committment to community partners, the Faith-Justice Institute is uniquely suited for sustaining and expanding this type of partnership amongst faculty, students, and community-based organizations and institutions.
