Book description

This is an ideal reference for those looking to understand, study, and practice community engagement and outreach. It discusses the different ways individuals - including faculty, administrators, and management in organizations - engage in their communities. It supplies case studies, best practices, and theoretical approaches to the study of community engagement. Scholars active in this field can use this book as an integration of the current knowledge concerning community engagement and as an inspiration for future research agendas. Whilst directing how to implement effective community engagement practices, the book also facilitates the application of organizational theory to community engagement. It will appeal to academics who are interested in the theoretical background of community engagement.
