Thank you faculty for being part of Community Engaged Scholarship at GWU. Please click the "become member" button to join this group.


The Community Engaged Scholarship* faculty group at the Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service offers support and advocacy to promote the work of GW's faculty. GW has a proud tradition of high-quality service-learning courses, as well as community-engaged research, creative work, and practice in the professions. We connect faculty who are doing Community-Engaged Scholarship in a variety of ways:

The Nashman Faculty Update- promotes and supports CES work of faculty and students across all GW schools and programs at the graduate and undergraduate level. The place for news on funding sources inside and outside of GW for CES work, opportunities to publish CES work in academic journals or present at conferences, news about academic civic engagement and public service at universities around the country.

Faculty Programs and Resources - Join faculty across the university for community conversations held at the Churchill Center at the Gelman library to discuss the scholarship of engagement and/or take part in monthly Faculty Learning Communities convened around topics of interest by and for faculty with the logistical support of the CES team.

Resources for Faculty Find conferences and literature about Community Engaged Scholarship to help you improve your practice and present your CES work for tenure and promotion.

GW based Grants, Awards, and Fellowships for Community Engaged Scholarship- The Nashman Center supports faculty and students in their scholarly endeavors through a variety of awards designed to support CES work.

Community Engaged Scholarship Courses - A Nashman Community Engaged Scholarship course is a collaboration between faculty, students and community members in mutually beneficial partnerships to address issues of the common good. 

*Community Engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. 

The purpose of community engagement is the partnership of college and university knowledge and resources with those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research, and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching, and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues; and contribute to the public good.
