Keeler Leads New Initiative to Improve University Engagement
September 13, 2022

Associate Professor Bonnie Keeler led an international team of researchers to develop The Guidebook for the Engaged University, a comprehensive roadmap for higher education institutions to expand and promote action-oriented research and practices that respond to society’s needs.

The Guidebook highlights university best practices to foster and support engaged scholarship by aligning their structures, incentives, and outcomes with solving the defining problems of our generation. 

The Guidebook was compiled by the Beyond the Academy Network, which began in 2018 as a project funded by the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI Challenge), led by the University of Minnesota and involving more than a dozen universities worldwide.
