Abstract

This paper presents a community-based model for undergraduate education, which employs the concept of the citizen-scholar. Citizen-scholars integrate their academic activities of teaching, research, and service into a coordinated whole. This model was developed at the University of Dayton in 1991. We discuss the history of model development and how it has been implemented over the last three years, including the ways in which this model has affected our teaching, research, and service activities.
