Self-assessment enables you and/or your institution to determine where you are in a journey towards excellence in and planning for the next steps of authentic and meaningful community engagement. Community engagement in higher education is often framed as the utilization of institutional resources for the bettering of our communities through collaboration with our communities (Partnerships for Health, 2007). A number of tools have been developed over the past thirty years to assist parts of or an entire institution to benchmark the principle characteristics of institutionalizing their community engagement activities (alignment with mission, assessment activities, dedication of resources, leadership, etc.).
Through this brief but focused webinar, attendees will be given an overview of not only the best-known self-assessment tools (e.g., Holland’s Matrix, Kecskes’s Engaged Department Rubric, Campus Compact’s Indicators of Engagement) but also the lesser known ones. Participants will also be able to engage in a discussion with each other and the presenter about how to best use and adapt these resources for your unique campus.
This opportunity is part of a series of workshops offered by Indiana Campus Compact to support you in creating a Civic Action Plan. For more information on creating a Civic Action Plan, please visit this website.
