Abstract

This book narrates the process undertaken by a set of faculty members in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University in Alabama to build new pedagogical content through purposeful attention to, respect for, and reciprocity with the communities that sustain them. Covering myriad intersecting and reoccurring themes within engaged public scholarship such as global citizenship, leadership, new media and its implications for community building, diversity, volunteerism, fundraising, literacy, aging populations, health and disability, granting institutions, faith-based initiatives, and nonprofit organizations, this collection serves as a model for faculty and administrators who intend to undertake community-engaged learning that brings scholarship into action.
