The fundamental goal of Engagement Scholarship is straightforward: the creation of mutually beneficial partnerships between universities and local communities to solve pressing social issues. The fulfillment of this goal requires learning two complex sets of skills and knowledges:How to be aware of histories of exploitation and injustice, and the likelihood of repeating those patterns in the present;How to create structures of genuinely working together to solve problems for the long haul – not short term or ideologically driven, naïve, or inappropriate fixes.
