Carnegie Foundation
Community Engagement Classification

FAU classification for Community Engagement provides a special-purpose classification for higher education institutions. This designation indicates the institutional commitment to community engagement by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.


The classification is not an award. It is intended to assist in a process of institutional change to improve the educational effectiveness of the campus through the institutionalization of community engagement. In this way, it is similar to an accreditation process of self-study. The classification framework represents best practices in the field and encourages continuous improvement through periodic re-classification.
