About Us 

Engaged Scholarship (ES) is viewed as the utilisation of academic and/or other expertise to the benefit of internal and external constituencies. ES encourages the generation of new knowledge and supports the integration, application, and dissemination of knowledge and skills through different mediums. ES reaches its goals by using three approaches: Engaged Teaching and Learning, Engaged Research, and Engaged Citizenship. The Faculty of the Humanities takes pride in the variety of engaged scholarship activities presented by our different departments. These activities demonstrate the commitment we have towards the growth and development of our students, staff members, and various social structures in our community. The Humanities is assigned with the task of producing students who are skilled for the world of work, but also students who understand and display the principle of civic responsiveness.
