Engaged Scholarship

Unisa Engaged Scholarship and Outreach Policy is firmly set within its vision of being the African university in the service of humanity. In the context of Unisa, community engagement refers to initiatives and processes through which the expertise of the institution in the areas of teaching and research are applied to address issues relevant to its community to the mutual benefit of the community  and the institution. Unisa Institutional Operational Plan specifies growing engaged scholarship initiatives as one of its goals. This goal is supported by two strategies:

  • Redefine the scope and extent of Engaged Scholarship in the context of ODL.
  • Build an enabling environment for Engaged Scholarship.

The College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) as a member college of the university supports the Engaged Scholarship strategies of Unisa. The colleges are guided by these strategies and are focused on the three flagship projects that capture the assence of its vision.
