Community-Engaged Scholarship for Health
The UD Partnership for Healthy Communities envisions healthy, thriving communities for everyone in Delaware and beyond, with a particular focus on communities that experience health inequities. We work to advance this vision by strengthening the University’s capacity for community engaged scholarship. We define community-engaged scholarship for health as:
The generation and application of knowledge through the synergistic activities of teaching, research and service in authentic partnership with a variety of community stakeholders, eliminating traditional hierarchies and one-way flows of knowledge outward from the University; it prioritizes interdisciplinary collaboration and mutually beneficial, sustainable partnerships which enhance the capacities of the university and its community partners to address critical health needs.
