Engaged scholarship at the University of the Free State

Engaged scholarship (ES) refers to the utilisation of our academic scholarly and/or professional expertise, with an intentional public purpose or benefit that demonstrates engagement with external constituencies. It can help to generate new knowledge and to promote the integration, application, or dissemination of knowledge.  ES can support the generation of new knowledge and inform policy in national, regional, and global contexts.
