Current Practice and Infrastructures for Campus Centers of Community Engagement
Welch, Marshall; Saltmarsh, John
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v17 n4 p25-55 2013
This article provides an overview of current practice and essential infrastructure of campus community engagement centers in their efforts to establish and advance community engagement as part of the college experience. The authors identified key characteristics and the prevalence of activities of community engagement centers at engaged campuses by reviewing the professional literature and analyzing over 100 successful applications for the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching elective Community Engagement Classification. These data can be used as a baseline for centers and institutions of higher education to assess their current structures and programs and to assist in strategic planning for the future.
