Engaged Campus Institute with Bonus Carnegie Academy


7/17/2017 - 10/20/2017

 

AASCU and NASPA Present:
Engaged Campus Institute with Bonus Carnegie Academy
Chart a Course to Civic & Community Engagement with the NIIICE Inventory & Action Plan

November 3 & 4, 2017 | Washington, DC


Application deadline: September 15, 2017.

 

This two-day institute is a workshop designed for teams from colleges and universities interested in strategic planning of their civic learning and democratic engagement efforts. This institute will provide not only the results of a comprehensive inventory of current practice and infrastructure to advance community engagement, but the “gift of time” for administrators to meet and work with their directors of campus centers for engagement to begin strategic planning for continued development of community engagement. This workshop is designed to assist campuses preparing for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification. It will address preparation for both first-time applicants and campuses that are reclassifying (those classified in 2010). 

The teams should be comprised of three individuals from each campus, the person who is directly responsible for CLDE work on campus, their respective supervisor (and campus decision maker - likely the Vice President of Student Affairs, Provost, Vice President for Academic Affairs, etc.) and the additional campus representative should be a campus partner from the opposite division. For instance, if person one and two are in Academic Affairs then the third person should be a part of the Student Affairs division. This could include individuals like: director of the campus center for community engagement, service-learning director, vice president for student affairs, community engagement officer, faculty director for community involvement, etc.

The workshop is limited to up to 20 teams or 60 participants. Participants will complete an online inventory in advance of the institute and receive their profile results onsite. The inventory can be accessed online and must be completed by OCTOBER 1, 2017 in order to have the results ready for the workshop. The inventory takes about 30 minutes to complete. 

The institute will provide an overview of the National Inventory of Institutional Infrastructure for Community Engagement (NIIICE) and the history of its development based on a 2013 research project conducted with the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE). The institute will continue with a presentation and review of the results from the inventory completed in advance. In this way workshop participants can compare the profile of their current operations with comparable institutions that have received the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement.  Participants will be given an opportunity to further discuss their strategic planning efforts with consultation from experts in the field.

This workshop is well timed for those applying or reclassifying for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification. The request for applications for the classification will be accepted May - July 2018.
