2 “Community Engagement describes the collaboration between higher education institutions and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.”

3  Acknowledge and celebrate the good work of many campuses  Respect the diversity of approaches  Utilize existing assessments and data  Encourage an inquiry process  Provide useful data for other purposes  Promote improvement and best practices in engagement

4  Mainly descriptive  Self-reported data/information  Institutions evaluate various aspects of their processes in relationship to standards of best practice and provide supportive evidence  Not a ranking tool – no hierarchy or levels of classification

5  Institutional Self-assessment & Self-study ◦ Brings disparate parts of the campus together to advance a unified agenda ◦ Allows for identification of promising practices that can be shared across the institution  Legitimacy --Enhances legitimacy, public recognition, visibility for CE  Accountability --Demonstrates institution is fulfilling its mission to serve the public good  Catalyst for Change--Fosters institutional alignment for community-based teaching, learning & scholarship  Institutional Identity --Clarifies institutional identity & mission distinguishing it from peers

6  311 /389 applicants classified  173 public/138 private institutions ◦ 111 research universities ◦ 103 master’s colleges/universities ◦ 59 baccalaureate colleges ◦ 20 community colleges ◦ 8 specialized (arts, medicine, technology)

7  305 campuses expressed an intent to apply/ received the application  154 campuses submitted an application ◦ 151 campuses withdrew without applying  115 received the classification



10  Foundational Indicators ◦ Institutional Commitment ◦ Institutional Identity and Culture  Curricular Engagement  Outreach and Partnerships

11  Assessment and Documentation  Reciprocity  Faculty Support and Rewards  Integration and Alignment with Other Institutional Initiatives

12  Application processes for 2015  Application guide available 2014  Potential for international applications

13 1. For the 2015 classification, campuses that have not received the classification will need to submit a complete application. 2. Additional questions added to the application 3. Campuses preparing to apply for the classification should use the 2010 documentation framework to guide their efforts 4. Check the website January 2013 for application

14  The questions on faculty rewards and changes in promotion guidelines will be moved out of the “supplemental questions” into the standard questions in the framework  (It will be considered as more significant!)

15 5. All campuses that received the classification in 2006 and 2008 will have the opportunity to re-apply through an abbreviated application process  The abbreviated application will not be available until January 2013--will not answer questions until then

16 Reapplication IntentApplication  The application will ask for evidence of changes that have taken place on campus (practices, structures, policies) to deepen community engagement and make it more pervasive across the institution  The reclassification application will include narrative sections allowing for explanation of changes that have occurred since the previous classification  Narratives address ◦ what currently exists (based on the most recent AY data) ◦ what has changed since the last classification ◦ relevant links to supporting evidence.  Example: “Briefly discuss any significant changes in mission, planning, etc., since the last classification, particularly focusing on evidence of encouraging deeper, more authentic collaboration and reciprocity in community partnerships.”

17 6. Campuses classified in 2010 will not need to make any applications until 2020

18  Identify appropriate key people  Form a committee  Set timelines and schedules  Set an inquiry agenda  Scan available data  Seek executive support  If you can’t get past the initial sections, don’t apply now, use the application to expand your engagement campus agenda

19 Clarify community engagement agenda on campus (town hall meetings, convocations, symposia) Inform others about community engagement Connect discussions/work to executive leadership, deans, and chairs (and what they care about) Build connections across campus (other units, strategic initiatives) Building connections with community partners, new and old Find ways to develop new leaders, new advocates, new allies & augmented understanding of CE activities Do NOT do it for Carnegie; Do it for your own self-interests
