The Community Engaged Scholarship Institute’s (CESI) Scholars are a small group of graduate research assistants enrolled in the PhD in Social Practice and Transformational Change program. During the admissions process, some students with interest and/or expertise in community engaged work are identified and offered a position at CESI as part of their funding package.
CESI Scholars are both students and expert practitioners whose diverse knowledge, skills, and expertise enables CESI to continue to learn and grow. Each scholar brings their own experience and connections to CESI. They are invited to work on projects that serve and enrich CESI's practice by filling knowledge gaps, expanding methodologies, and building new connections.
CESI Scholars' activities vary based on their goals, research interests, and skills. See profiles for current CESI Scholars on the Current Students page.
