community involvement, social service, social responsibility, American education
Since its inception, the American higher education system has been rapidly evolving into a highly complex and dynamic set of institutions with a broad spectrum of missions. During the last 35 years, questions have arisen about the relevance of their contributions to society as a whole.

This article presents a global description of the emergence of community engagement, its characteristics, and challenges in the context of the United States.
