Engagement and Outreach Scholars Academy

The Engagement and Outreach Scholars Academy (EOSA) is a national model for engaged scholarship. EOSA provides professional development and project support for research that connect campus with communities. Projects result in a culture of partnership, reciprocity and high-quality scholarship. Faculty selected to the program participate in cohort-based workshops and develop a research project with their community partner.

Graduate and Honors College undergraduate students from a variety of fields of study are assigned to assist EOSA faculty with their projects. Undergraduates assigned to projects make up the Student Engagement and Outreach Scholars Academy (SEOSA). Students learn about community engagement and are involved in project design, data collection and analysis, publication and other aspects of scholarly research and creative activity. After a peer selection process, scholars attend a series of workshops, complete a research proposal and implement the research with a community partner.
