The Mindich Program in Engaged Scholarship (MPES) supports innovations in teaching and learning through civically engaged experiential learning in or with community beyond the Harvard context. By transcending the boundaries of the classroom, the MPES aims to link academics to real-world questions, problems, and opportunities, challenging students and faculty to integrate scholarship with community perspectives, knowledge, and expertise to have impact within and beyond the academy. At the heart of the MPES are Engaged Scholarship courses that advance curricular innovations through the integration of academics and community engagement.
