Public Scholarship and Engagement (PSE) is a university-wide office serving both campuses and all ten colleges and schools. Public scholarship at UC Davis aims to have a positive public impact and is inclusive of different disciplines and diverse forms of scholarship in terms of research and creative activity, teaching and learning, equity and leadership.

The three primary roles of Public Scholarship and Engagement are to:

  • Connect communities to university resources through research and student learning experiences, technical assistance and training, workshops and events.

  • Convene individuals and groups to build relationships, partnerships, and networks.

  • Champion public scholarship that advances the university's production of knowledge, learning, and leadership.
