This chapter explores a central university–community engagement conundrum, namely its fit with universities’ core missions, and how ‘ideas’ of engagement move through the institution. At the heart of this conundrum, we see a certain slipperiness around the concept of engagement. There are so many different mechanisms by which universities can engage, and many universities are already extensively engaged with outside partners, that this leads to an under-specification of the engagement idea.
