Projects of the BT2P Community

A Series of Briefs on Community-Engaged Scholarship


AMP Grants are offered to previous BT2P awardees to amplify, disseminate, and extend the public reach of their earlier, grant-supported work.  This project, which drew on a 2014 BT2P seminar grant, involved the creation of briefs for the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN), an organization of academic researchers committed to using scholarship to improve policy and strengthen democracy.  More specifically, it supported the preparation of a series of research briefs for the SSN focused on community-engaged scholarship.  The aim of the series is to assist campus leaders, state policymakers, higher education organizations, and disciplinary associations in creating policies, practices, and institutional structures that support publicly-engaged scholarship and policy-making.  The briefs are also intended to present an overview of and evidence related to the value of community-engaged scholarship in a digestible form.
