Signature Workshop

Preparing for the 2020 Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement

Monday, October 9, 9:00 am—12:00 pm

Although CUMU members span the country, they are united by a shared philosophy of deep engagement with their communities. Currently, 60% of CUMU members have received the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement. In 2020, 35 CUMU members will be eligible to receive the classification and 12 will be eligible for reclassification.


About the Workshop

This signature workshop is designed to assist campuses preparing for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification. It will address preparation for both first-time applicants and campuses that are reclassifying (those classified in 2010). The workshop will address:

  • an orientation to both the classification and reclassification 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
