Moving Us Forward: Recognizing and Rewarding Civic Engagement
The mission of this conference is to advance institutional engagement. Leaders in higher education will participate in workshops on engaged scholarship, institutional change, and campus-community reciprocity. This conference will include an institute for faculty teams to focus on institutional strategies for rewarding engaged scholarship in promotion and tenure.
Campus Compact shares a rich history with the Carnegie classification for community engagement – demonstrated by the Compact’s 13 indicators of engagement richly informing the classification. In fact, the majority of Carnegie classified institutions are members of state Compacts. Through on-going consultation with campuses seeking the engaged classification, our state offices are intimately aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the most recent applications. This conference will focus on key areas of campus-community engagement in order to maximize the likelihood of success on future designations.
A playlist of videos is available on YouTube that contains conversations with faculty and administrators from campuses throughout the region to discuss the future of engaged scholarship on campuses and related issues.
