Recognizing Excellence in Community-Engaged Scholarship

UVic's Dr. Crystal Tremblay, UVic Special Advisor on Community Engaged Scholarship, developed a resource for evaluation of promotion, tenure and merit of Community Engaged Scholarship (CES).

This resource is informed by a comprehensive literature review and empirical research conducted by the (former) Office of Community University Engagement (OCUE) between August-December 2016. An impact rubric for assessing CES accompanies this resource. It is the intention that this resource be used to support a meaningful consultation process for reviewing and implementing tenure, promotion and merit policies for CES at UVic.
