Actualizing a Culture for Community Engagement

The Actualizing a Culture for Community Engagement grant provided our partner institutions with the opportunity to deepen their community engagement efforts by intentionally developing a campus-wide ethos for community engagement. By intentionally designing and implementing holistic community engagement strategies intended to shift the culture, selected institutions were enabled to create authentic reciprocal community-campus partnerships, and leverage their role as a place-based institutions to accelerate systematic change.

The overall goals of the program included:

  • Support institutions in the implementation of community engagement strategies intended to shift campus-wide culture.
  • Increase the number of authentic (Mitchell, 2008) reciprocal community-campus partnerships designed to further support a culture of community engagement within the institution.
  • Support the dissemination of examples of high-quality campus-wide community engagement practices as a means of broadening the field.
