Ernest Boyer coined the term “Engaged Scholarship” to describe teaching and research that connects “the university to our most pressing social, civic, and ethical problems” (Boyer, 1996 [pdf]). Organized by the Lang Center and faculty from across the disciplines, this course will bring together students who are interested in connecting their academics with action to explore and promote ethical intelligence, active yet reflective civic engagement, and innovative solutions to pressing social problems.  We regard community members’ insights and experiences as integral components of our co-created knowledge, recognizing that social and political solutions must consider the perspectives of those most directly affected. As such, this course will be co-instructed by faculty, staff, and community experts from on and off campus and the final assignment will represent a collaborative endeavor.
