Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty

Sponsored by the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE)


The annual  recognizes a faculty member who is pre-tenure at tenure-granting campuses and early career (i.e., within the first six years) at campuses with long-term contracts and who connects his or her teaching, research, and service to community engagement.


The Lynton Award emphasizes community-based scholarly work across faculty roles. The scholarship of engagement (also known as outreach scholarship, public scholarship, scholarship for the common good, community-based scholarship, and community-engaged scholarship) represents an integrated view of the faculty role in which teaching, research/creative activity, and service overlap and are mutually reinforcing, is characterized by scholarly work tied to a faculty member's expertise, is of benefit to the external community, is visible and shared with community stakeholders, and reflects the mission of the institution. In addition, NERCHE conceptualizes scholarly engagement in terms of social justice in a diverse democracy.


2011 Lynton Award Nominations:


  • Nominations can be made by academic colleagues, administrators, students, and community partners.
  • More than one faculty member from a single college or university may be nominated. Please complete separate applications for each nominee.

Nominators will submit nominations via an online application.  To submit an application, please see the Application Instructions.


Application Deadline: Friday, April 29, 2011.
