Survey for Carnegie Classification Workshops

Posted by on January 20, 2009

Brief Survey on Carnegie Classification Workshops.

The achievement of Carnegie Community Engagement Classification is an important indicator of institutional commitment to public service. The recent announcement of 119 institutions receiving this recognition has sparked broad interest among our members to undertake the process of documenting their policies and activities regarding campus/community partnerships, nine of whom are PA Campus Compact members.  See . We congratulate Alvernia University, Cabrini College, Drexel University, Duquesne University, Messiah College, Northampton Community College, Swarthmore College, University of Scranton, and Villanova University! The national visibility of the Carnegie designation, and the value of the institutional self-study have triggered requests for assistance in preparing for the next round of Carnegie applications.

Pennsylvania and New York Campus Compacts will jointly host two events to help member institutions prepare the required documentation for Carnegie Community Engagement designation for 2010.  We recognize that the self-study process can be time-consuming. These NYCC/PACC workshops will make that process more manageable.  The workshops will feature a representative from the Carnegie Foundation as well as from institutions which have successfully completed the process.  They will provide an overview of the classification elements, required data and documents, and strategies for compiling a report.  Sessions will be hands-on, application-centered. We encourage institutions to bring together campus teams. To assist in our planning process, and to make this event most useful to you, would you please complete the following brief survey by February 1st.  Institutions that have already received the classification should also complete the survey.  It should take about two minutes.
