SP4.2: Carnegie Classification Application

This project aims to make Binghamton distinctive in the breadth and depth of its community engagement by catalyzing new curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular engagement activities. Project accomplishments to date include (1) approval of new Banner designations for courses meeting new criteria for Academic Service Learning and Community Engaged Learning; (2) affiliation with or acceptance into national organizations and nationally-scaled engagement initiatives including: Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU), Imagining America (IA) and the NASPA Lead Initiative (received Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) classification from NASPA); (3) the upgrading of the Community Engagement Associate position to a regular staff line; and (4) a new partnership between CCPA and the Division of Student Affairs to support a community schools initiative in Broome County. While the University will not formally pursue Carnegie Classification in this application cycle, the project leaders look forward ot Road Map funding for additional initiatives in the 2014-15 year.
