Engaged Scholars complete four requirements:
1. Engaged Courses
2. ESP Practicum
3. ESP Seminar
4. ESP Capstone
Advising and mentoring is critical to the Engaged Scholars Program, from course selection to practicum development. As a general rule, academic departments and programs provide advising through faculty advisors for course selection and capstone development. ESP staff primarily advise on practicum development, and also provide ongoing advising about program requirements.
Student participation in the program is tracked by ESP staff and concentration advisors in ASK. We encourage ESP students to continually update their concentration course plan in ASK to include engaged courses. Additionally, the ESP Canvas site, available to ESP students and viewable by advisors and ESP staff, provides more information about program requirements and is a platform for submitting program requirements, including practicum work plans and reflections.
More information about Program Requirements.
The Engaged Scholars Program accepted applications from students in participating concentrations through Summer 2020 but is not enrolling additional students. The new undergraduate Engaged Scholarship Certificate (ESC) builds on the strengths and core elements of the ESP and is accessible to students in any concentration.
Students will be able to submit ESC declarations in ASK beginning in August 2021. All students already participating in the ESP will be supported through to graduation. With questions about the certificate or this transition, please email [email protected].
