Imagining America fosters partnerships between campus and community that plan and carry out creative work and scholarship.
Among the activities Imagining America promotes are
- Intellectual work that produces a public good;
- Artistic, critical, and historical work that contributes to public debates;
- Efforts to expand the place of public scholarship in higher education itself, including the development of new programs and research on the successes of such efforts.
- Reforms in tenure and promotion policy to encompass the contributions made through new forms of public scholarship.
