The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) has released the first video of the I AM USF & I AM ENGAGED Video Series. The purpose of the series is to illustrate what engaged scholarship is and how it impacts our students, faculty, and our community. OCE defines engaged scholarship as experiences where practitioners and scholars co-produce knowledge on important questions. A few examples of engaged scholarship are community outreach, service learning, clinical teaching, social causes, and community based participatory research.

The Office of Community Engagement hopes viewers will find the series inspirational and enlightening. OCE welcomes the opportunity to hear from all students, faculty, and community members about their experiences with civic engagement.
