  2. Integrating expertise and wisdom from the local and global community into the curriculum and the students’ experiences
  3. Promoting the recognition of participatory-action research and scholarship
  4. Facilitating collaborative research in university-community engagement
  5. Developing evaluative tools to measure the success of community engagement
