Purpose – The purpose of this Editorial is to introduce key themes in the area of student‐community engagement (SCE) and the papers included in this special issue. Design/methodology/approach – The paper discusses dominant trends in the current context. Findings – The selection of papers in this issue represent the range of programmes that have been developed over the past five or so years and indicate what they have, and have not been able to achieve. However, the recent context indicates an acceleration of the expectations placed on higher education to develop socially responsible citizens and to create graduates who will be able to solve the complex problems of an increasingly complex world. Originality/value – The paper provides a background to SCE and the changing role and context of higher education.
