The following is a collection of Southern Miss faculty, staff, and student publications involving community-engaged scholarship.

Community-engaged scholarship is (from Stanton, 2008):

  • Research or creative activity in any field that pairs university scholarly resources with those in the public and private sectors to enrich knowledge, address and help solve critical societal issues, and contribute to the public good.
  • Research focused on civic participation in public life, including participation by engaged scholars, and on the impacts of this work on all constituencies.
  • Research on educating students for civic and community engagement, including what students need to know and be able to do as active, effective citizens of a diverse democracy.
  • Research on advancing civic engagement within and across universities

Community-engaged scholarship involves scholarly investigation of authentic social problems that are identified in collaboration with communities.
