Carnegie Classification Data Collection

2020 Elective Carnegie Civic Engagement Classification Faculty Data Collection

The information you submit will be utilized by the university in the 2020 Elective Carnegie Civic Engagement Classification application process. This documentation framework is intended to gather information about our institution's commitments and activities regarding community engagement. Elective classifications enable the Foundation’s classification system to recognize important aspects of institutional mission and action that are not represented in the national data.

We are asking all UT Arlington faculty to complete each of the following sections as they apply to your students’ course or program work activities with the community. This work may be in a *service learning course, volunteer activity, or pre-professional capacity.

UT Arlington Mission Statement The University of Texas at Arlington is a comprehensive research, teaching, and public service institution whose mission is the advancement of knowledge and the pursuit of excellence. The University is committed to the promotion of lifelong learning through its academic and continuing education programs and to the formation of good citizenship through its community service learning programs. The diverse student body shares a wide range of cultural values and the University community fosters unity of purpose and cultivates mutual respect.

For this application we will utilize the following definitions:

  • Community Engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. (http://classifications.carnegiefoundation.org/descriptions/community_engagement.php)
  • Service learning is a course-based, credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs, and reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of personal values and civic responsibility (Bringle & Hatcher, 1995)
