Engaged Scholarship is an active partnership between the academy and the community.  It stems from a reciprocal and mutually beneficial relationship between the university and the public that engages teaching, research, and creative activities for the generation, exchange, and application of knowledge.  This partnership creates opportunities to explore the critical problems and challenges facing the State of Missouri and the world.
