Foundations of Engaged Scholarship offers students a carefully curated selection of readings that help them prepare for and make the most of their academic career. Readers learn the importance of asking the right questions, developing commitment and compassion, and making a difference in the lives of others to achieving an effective and rewarding educational experience.

Over the course of eight chapters, students are provided engaging readings that examine the philosophy of education, finding community and a sense of belonging in school, the importance of critical thinking, and community engagement. Additional sections speak to engaging in public discourse, developing the personal and professional self, and conducting research. The collection concludes with a chapter written from a student's perspective, encouraging students to take advantage of opportunities, ask questions, and apply the book subject matter to their own experiences.

Featuring diverse perspectives and critical knowledge for students new to the college experience, Foundations of Engaged Scholarship is an ideal resource for freshman orientation courses or programs.
