Free Downloads

Full Description

Many people view higher education as an ivory tower, detached from the problems of the real world. This Kettering Foundation occasional paper recounts the stories of 11 faculty members (Kenneth Keller, Lorraine Guttierez, Sylvia Hurtado, Julie Ellison, John Saltmarsh, Cathy Jordan, Nan Kari, Sallye McKee, Michael Schudson, David Scobey, and Bill Doherty) who are among the growing numbers of academic professionals drawn to the civic engagement movement aimed at integrating scholarship with public purposes.

Harry C. Boyte is founder and codirector of the Center for Democracy and Citizenship based at Augsburg College and a senior fellow at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Institute.
