Campus Compact Learning Resources for the Carnegie Classification on Community Engagement

Carnegie Classification Virtual Learning Community

For those actively pursuing the Carnegie Classification, this moderated virtual learning community is available to all Campus Compact members seeking (re)classification for the Carnegie Foundation’s Elective Classification on Community Engagement.  During the application process, members will receive support from experts in the field who are moderating the community as well as from one other.

This online platform allows Campus Compact members the opportunity to participate in a moderated peer learning community with similar institutions and experts in the field. Members can share information, ask questions and learn from each other. The Virtual Learning Community is a place where members can receive feedback on specific topics and share resources with other members. Campus Compact and its experts will be active in the virtual learning community and will respond to and address key challenges as they arise.

The learning community will operate from September 2013 – April 2014.

Thanks to Campus Compact for all that you have done over the years to nurture the campus service and service-learning movement. When we started at St. A's 15 years ago there was a feeling among some campuses that we were seeing higher education's latest 'flash in the pan.' Instead it was the beginning of a revolution of ideas and relationships, and you guys have been fueling us all the way."
