Community Engagement Classification Reaffirmed
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has reaffirmed UNC Charlotte’s community engagement classification, which the University earned originally in 2008.
Colleges and universities with an institutional focus on community engagement were invited to apply for the classification, which is an "elective" process, unlike the Carnegie Foundation’s other classifications that rely on national data. To receive community engagement classification, institutions voluntarily submit required materials that describe the nature and extent of their engagement with the community, be it local or beyond.
As part of the application process, the University outlined how it continued to integrate community engagement into the overall day-to-day programming of the institution. "Community engagement has been essential to UNC Charlotte since its founding," said UNC Charlotte Chancellor Philip L. Dubois. "A renewed commitment to deepening the scope of community engagement across all parts of the University has led to an action-oriented and sustained community engagement approach involving students, faculty and staff."
