Leveraging community engagement data to transform institutional strategy and success
2020 brought unprecedented challenges, but also a unique opportunity to re-examine civic engagement in this new landscape. It encourages institutions to examine community-university partnerships to better address pressing social issues and demonstrate the relevance of higher education, particularly in times of crisis. Learn how a cohort of AASCU campuses is using Collaboratory and its data to advance community engagement, inform institutional strategy, deepen involvement of stakeholder groups, ensure transparency of efforts, identify gaps, and understand impact.
The 2021 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement conference brings together faculty, student affairs professionals, students, senior campus administrators, and community partners. Together we will ensure that students graduate from our colleges and universities, both public and private, prepared to be the informed, engaged citizens our communities and our democracy need.
