The Next Generation Engagement Project comprises a cross-disciplinary collection of civically engaged scholars at various stages in their careers. They are exploring new ways to conceptualize the development of the next generation of leaders of civic engagement in higher education. The Next Generation Scholars share their insights, interests, and challenges, and they engage participants in an exploration of strategies for advancing the next generation of engaged scholars and practitioners. Through collaborative book projects, civic seminars and research on the arc of the career of the publicly engaged scholar, the participants have worked over the past year to embody the future of civic engagement through the development of interdisciplinary structures, mentorship for graduate students and early career faculty, development of graduate programs, and the support of early career faculty.
