Publicly Engaged Scholarship (PES) is emerging as a paradigm expanding notions about knowledge production and a methodological toolkit for impactful, interdisciplinary, scholarly practice. While a growing literature provides evidence for its efficacy, more is needed to specify key dimensions. Shaped around findings from a national study exploring the aspirations and decisions of graduate students and early career professionals, this research symposium brings together key individual and institutional aspects of PES. The second paper presents insights from the first year of an innovative college model designed around core principles of PES. Employing a conceptual approach, two additional papers in turn, interrogate the role of “activism” in scholarship and present conceptual framing for knowledge production and institutional change in the 21st Century.
