Do You Have Products of Community-Engaged Scholarship That Aren’t Appropriate for Publication in Journals? We Need to Hear from You!

CCPH would like to invite you to participate in the “Faculty for the Engaged Campus” project. The project aims to strengthen community-engaged career paths in the academy and is supported by a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education in the US Department of Education.  One aspect of the project is to facilitate the peer review and dissemination of products of community-engaged scholarship (CES) that are not in the form of manuscripts appropriate for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. Such products might take the form of curricula, training videos, policy reports, resource guides, PowerPoint presentations, websites, films, etc. We currently lack a systematic and rigorous way to review and disseminate such products. As a result, their impact and the potential for them to be recognized as scholarly work in the faculty promotion and tenure system is compromised. A Faculty for the Engaged Campus working group composed of academics and community members has designed “”. CES4Health will be an online mechanism for the peer review and dissemination of scholarly products resulting from health-related (broadly defined) service-learning, community-based participatory research and other community-academic partnership work.   We are now inviting our inaugural set of authors. If you have created a non-traditional scholarly product of community-engaged scholarship, we invite you to submit it for peer review and dissemination through CES4Health.

To submit a product or learn more about the application process, peer review criteria or evaluation plan for this inaugural phase, please email Faculty for the Engaged Campus Co-Director Cathy Jordan at
