Public Scholars Community

Recognizing Public Scholarship at UC Davis

We champion public scholarship that advances the university’s production of knowledge, learning and leadership. We know that to more fully integrate this approach into our collective culture, we must recognize and support scholars and practitioners doing the work. We’re building a community of UC Davis faculty and staff whose research, teaching and creative practice that engages the public or focuses on issues of high public impact.

Want to be a part of our community?

Are you a scholar who contributes to publicly engaged research and/or teaching? Please fill out this short form and a PSE staff member will be in touch with you in 5-7 business days. For Winter-Spring 2022, we are limiting this to scholars with Federation or Senate titles, but plan to expand the community further in the future.

In addition, check out curated scholarly work on the Public Scholarship & Engagement eScholarship page.
