Provost’s Award for Excellence in Community Engaged Scholarship

Community-Engaged Scholarship is integral to the academic endeavor and to the institution-wide mission of a land-grant university. Such scholarship arises from the involvement of members of the university community in the academically relevant work of discovery, creativity, integration, teaching, application, and engagement in a context of collaboration and reciprocity with the community (local, regional/state, national, or global) to create conditions for the public good, culminating in sustainable change and dissemination of these activities.

Each awardee will be recognized for their exemplary work in Public Engagement and will:

  • Receive an appropriately inscribed plaque.
  • Have their name engraved on the Plaque of Awardees, located in the Office of the Provost, Gulley Hall.
  • Be featured in future special feature articles and highlights through other UConn communication platforms and external news sources.

Self-nominations will not be accepted.

Nominations are due by 5 p.m., March 26, 2021. Please contact amanda.pitts@uconn.edu with any questions.
