What is public scholarship?

Public scholarship means different things to different people, but broadly defined it is teaching, research and learning that has a public impact.

At UC Davis, we use the term “public scholarship” as it makes explicit who we serve as a public land-grant institution, but also that we see this work as being broad and inclusive of different forms of scholarship that vary by discipline and types of scholarly activity.
