About Us

University of Saskatchewan outreach and engagement is a key component of our history and academic culture. This outreach includes cultural, artistic, ethnic and Aboriginal communities, as well as governments and organizations, industries and businesses. As part of its investment in excellence in academic teaching, scholarship, artistic work, and community engagement and outreach that extends internationally, the University founded the Engaged Scholar Journal.

Launched in 2014, this new Canadian journal is envisioned to be a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, online journal. It will serve as a venue for reciprocal and meaningful co-creation of knowledge among scholars, educators, professionals, and community leaders in Canada and worldwide. The new Journal has the following goals:

  • To inspire and promote productive dialogue between the practice and theory of engaged scholarship
  • To critically reflect on engaged scholarship, research, and pedagogy pursued by various University of Saskatchewan and community partners, working locally, nationally, and internationally, across various academic disciplines and areas of application.
  • To promote further dialogue between community and University partners on the nature of engaged partnership
  • To serve as a forum for constructive debate on the meanings and applications of engaged scholarship among partners and communities.
