Documenting Impacts: Engaged Research Centers and Community ChangeHandbook of Engaged Scholarship: Contemporary Landscapes, Future Directions: Volume 2: Community-Campus Partnerships (2010)
In the past two decades, colleges and universities across the nation, particularly those located in urban and metropolitan areas, have witnessed the creation and growth of a new type of research enterprise: the engaged research center (ERC). These new academic enterprises differ from traditional campus research centers with regard to research focus, practice, and outcomes. The purpose of this article is to explore these new research centers and their contributions to both university-community engagement and the quality of life in the communities, regions, and states in which they are located.
