Countdown to Carnegie
Did you know that more than 1000 students enroll in community-based learning courses each year? Dozens of partner organizations mutually benefit from the service students provide when applying what they are learning in class. This is only one of many reasons UW-Parkside received the Carnegie Foundation's Community Engagement Classification in 2006. To become reclassified as such, a new application is due on April 15, 2014. We have 103 days left to complete our self-assessment and core team members need your help documenting all of the evidence of engagement at UW-P.
WHAT IS STILL NEEDED?We need all requested data submitted ASAP so that writers can produce a first draft by mid-February. Then entire campus will have an opportunity to read and provide additional input during the last two weeks of February.
For more information, please view the PowerPoint presentation (prepared for presentation on December 11). Call the Center for Community Partnerships, at extension-3340, to ask any questions!
