Engaged Scholars Academy

Brad Kinsey and group

UNH Engaged Scholar Brad Kinsey and his graduate student Richard Onyancha motivate elementary kids to build robots and learn about engineering.

The Engaged Scholars Academy was held between 2004 and 2010. This faculty development program was designed to enhance faculty success in engaged scholarship within the disciplines and served as the model for subsequent faculty development academies, including the Research and Engagement Academy, the Economic Development Academy, and the UNH Writing Academy. Academy faculty have been supported in developing and engaging in mutually beneficial collaborations with external partners. The Academy's goal was to identify, mentor, and work with faculty from across the institution who are interested in Engaged Scholarship. UNH has developed the Engaged Scholars Academy curriculum that has become a model and a resource for other universities around the country.
