“Demonstrating Impact as a Community-Engaged Scholar within a Research University"
By Farrah Jacquez (University of Cincinnati), recipient of NERCHE's 2013 Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty
The article appears in Metropolitan Universities Journal (Vol. 25, No. 2).
"Within promotion processes, research universities traditionally place highest value on grant funding and peer reviewed publications. In contrast, community-engaged research tends to value community partnerships and direct community benefit. Community-engaged early career faculty can have difficulty negotiating the demands required for promotion and tenure and the time and effort required for truly collaborative community partnerships. In this reflective piece, the experience of an early career community engaged faculty member within a research university is described."
