This handbook is designed to help departments develop strategies for including community-based work in their teaching and scholarship, making community-based experiences a standard expectation for majors, and encouraging civic engagement and progressive change at the departmental level. It acts as both a resource and a curriculum, assisting others in replicating the Engaged Department Institutes offered nationwide by Campus Compact.

The toolkit comes with a CD-ROM with key information from the text as well as PowerPoint slides and sample documents that can be adapted to meet the needs of individual departments.
