Preparing for the 2020 Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement Workshop

These one-day workshops, offered in locations across the country, are designed to assist campuses preparing for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification. Workshops will address preparation for both first-time applicants and campuses that are re-classifying (those classified in 2010). The workshops will include:

  • an orientation to both the classification and re-classification frameworks
  • an overview of the 2020 process
  • additions and changes to the documentation framework
  • review of the documentation framework and complete application
  • strategies that have been effective for successful application

There will be opportunities to work though aspects of the application and consider evidence that campuses can provide and time for participants to ask questions. Both individuals and teams are welcome to attend.
