Seven Guiding Principles for Authentic Engagement (Kellogg)

  • Responsiveness – the extent to which the university is listening and responding to the needs of the community
  • Respect for partners – truly collaborative relationships benefiting all parties
  • Academic neutrality – the institutional role as an honest broker, bringing its expertise to bear on issues of societal importance
  • Accessibility – welcoming to all stakeholders
  • Integration – the level of institutional commitment to engagement
  • Coordination – the organizational structure through which engagement achieves its highest possible ideal
  • Resource partnerships – the tangible resources devoted to engagement, both within and outside of the institution.
