The Scholar-Practitioner Model is one that is founded in both theory and practice. It is the cornerstone of the university's doctoral programs. According to Sage Knowledge, "Scholar practitioners explicitly reflect on and assess the impact of their work. Their professional activities and the knowledge they develop are based on collaborative and relational learning through active exchange within communities of practice and scholarship" (Scholar-Practitioner Model, 2019). The following is a list of articles covering the scope of the SPL model in-depth.
