About us

the center for publicly engaged scholarship

The newly established Center at UCSB aims to bridge the gap between research and the community. We are proud to announce the return of our full operations via remote work.

Bringing together academics, research, and the community

Mission

The Center for Publicly Engaged Scholarship at UCSB is devoted to amplifying the social impact of research across the campus, with a special emphasis on the closely related research in educational equity, carried out in the The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, and research on the many problems that stem from social inequities.

Vision

The Center focuses both on roots and remedies, and will direct its work toward partnerships with a range of audiences, from activists and civil society organizations, to government agencies, the media, and the private sector. The CPES brings together scholars, community members, and stakeholders to study, discuss, and come up with solutions for major public issues. 

Values

The ultimate goals of the Center for Publicly Engaged Scholarship are to support UCSB researchers in partaking in research that makes a difference in the world, to find practical applications for this
research, and to help benefit local communities across the globe in promoting equity, social justice, peace, sustainability,

Op-Ed: Brazil's politics are making the Amazon fires worse. But other factors are at play too

Last week, I sat in a restaurant in a small town called Tabatinga in northwestern Amazonia. Looking out to the street, through the haze, I could see the moon was stained pink by the smoke of burning rainforest.

A 'Somber Urgency'

One of the greatest crises currently facing the United States – mass shootings – is the focus of new and potentially ground-breaking social science research to be conducted at UC Santa Barbara. The work is expected to yield new knowledge that will inform policymakers, activists and the public at large.
