Gateways provides a forum for academics, practitioners and community representatives to pursue issues and reflect on practices related to interactions between tertiary institutions and community organizations; academic interventions in community; community-based projects with links to the tertiary sector; and community initiatives. The journal publishes evaluative case studies of community engagement initiatives, analyses of the policy environment and theoretical reflections that contribute to the scholarship of engagement. It publishes both refereed and unrefereed articles. The journal addresses community engagement occurring across scholarly disciplines and at all levels of community including: capacity building initiatives in diverse communities from young people, older people, people with a disability, Indigenous communities and culturally diverse to interfaith communities; health promotion and capacity building; community cultural development (CCD); rural regeneration; housing and neighbourhood renewal; information technology (IT) and public participation; collaborative design and community safety; the environment and natural resource management; corporate social responsibility; social enterprise and social entrepreneurship; and triple bottom line accounting (measuring economic, environmental and social outcomes). The journal also aims to engage academics and policymakers more fully with the concerns of the community and community engagement. It also seeks to articulate creative tensions between theory and practice. Community engagement seeks to promote institutional change in the ways in which community, universities and government see themselves and their partnerships. There is also an imperative to promote the value of research that is driven by need as much as curiosity. Gateways will explore these vital concerns for the enhancement of Community Engagement in its many forms..
