The Carnegie Engagement Classification is designed to be a form of evidence-based documentation that a campus meets the criteria to be recognized as a community engaged institution. Editors John Saltmarsh and Mathew B. Johnson use their extensive experience working with the Carnegie Engagement Classification to offer a collection of resources for institutions that are interested in making a first-time or reclassification application for this recognition. Contributors offer insight on approaches to collecting the materials needed for an application and strategies for creating a complete and successful application. Chapters include detailed descriptions of what happened on campuses that succeeded in their application attempts and even reflection from a campus that failed on their first application. Readers can make use of worksheets at the end of each chapter to organize their own classification efforts.

“In The Elective Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, Saltmarsh and Johnson have brought together scholars and practitioners from a diverse array of institutions who provide thoughtful, practical advice and insights about community engagement efforts in higher education. These experts offer candid reflections on how the process of applying for (or renewing) the classification can benefit an institution’s culture, commitment, self-assessment, strategic planning, and outreach. Institutions interested in pursuing this voluntary classification, as well as in enhancing their community engagement initiatives more broadly, will find this volume to be an extremely valuable resource.”

Jonathan Alger, President, James Madison University

“Now approaching its 5th cycle, the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement is contributing significantly to the improvement of community engagement strategies and outcomes. This book offers clear and valuable perspectives [as well as] models and tips from a diverse array of institutional settings. Whether your campus plans to apply for the classification or you want an excellent guide for internal planning and assessment, this book is an excellent resource to help inform your path toward a strong and effective agenda of engagement.”

Barbara A. Holland, Distinguished Professor of Community Engagement, University of Nebraska, Omaha
