Collaboratory Best Practices Webinar Series: Align, Support and Measure Your Institution’s Community Engagement
Collaboratory is pleased to host the peer-reviewed workshop first presented by Dr. Norris and Dr. Mann at the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) 2019 conference in Seattle. Learn from a public and private institution how they:
- Align community engagement across the institution: Foundation relations, institutional planning, and academic planning
- Implement a systematic process for collecting data regarding community engagement
- Assess resources the institution needs to support/strengthen community engagement and gauge the community engagement strategies supporting institutional goals
