The Center for Engaged Scholarship is an organization, created by and for social scientists, who want the United States to be a more democratic, more egalitarian, and more environmentally sustainable society.
We use our skills as researchers and teachers to challenge the wrong ideas of the right-wing and to generate new ideas that can contribute to progressive change. Our first initiative is a dissertation fellowship for social science PhD students in the U.S. whose work can contribute to the change we seek.
As the Center grows, it aspires to build a new generation of progressive scholars, create stronger networks across institutions and disciplines, support reform movements within particular disciplines, and articulate a strong, progressive vision for the future of higher education. We hope to contribute to progressive social change by mobilizing the ideas and energies of engaged scholars.
