Outreach & Engagement Inventory

Picture Banner 2 Community Engagement describes collaboration between institutions of higher education 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.  (Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2006).

Engagement occurs when faculty or staff members’ research, teaching, administrative, or service activities significantly engage their scholarly or professional expertise with communities and/or organizations outside the university with the direct goal of improving outcomes for those who live and work in them.  Engagement between university and community members can take several different forms.
