To participate in the academy, faculty must be nominated by a dean, department chair, or academy alumnus. Following the nomination, participants submit a formal application and letters of support. This helps to ensure faculty and administrative commitment to the program. We seek a mix of scholars from diverse disciplines, rank, and with a range of outreach experience. Rich discussion results when the scholars' understanding of engagement as a "form of scholarship" is varied.
