Course Description

Being an engaged campus: opportunities for teaching, learning, research, and service.

Appalachian State University is one of only 361 colleges and universities officially classified by the Carnegie Foundation as Community Engaged Campus. But what does this mean to our community of teachers, learners, scholars, and staff? What opportunities exist for the members of our academic community become part of –indeed, to shape—this vision of local-to-global engagement?

This event focuses on what the Carnegie Elective Classification means for our campus, our faculty, our students, and our community. Our goal is to share information about the opportunities that exist for faculty, students, and staff to participate in civic engagement, service learning, and global service learning experiences. We will further discuss how our Carnegie Engaged Classification and the Office of Academic Civic Engagement can empower the faculty to reveal through their teaching, research, and service what it means to be an engaged campus.
