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 no longer includes a CD-ROM, but customers can email stylusinfo@styluspub.com with proof of purchase, and we will email you the key information that was on the CD-ROM, including PowerPoint slides and sample documents that can be adapted to meet the needs of individual departments.
