Engagement boxes to tick

The Carnegie Foundation is piloting its community engagement classification in Australia. UTS and Charles Sturt U are co-ordinating, with Australian Catholic U, Central Queensland U, Curtin, Flinders, Southern Cross and Sunshine Coast universities participating.

The classification is “an evidence-based documentation of institutional practice to be used in a process of self-assessment and quality improvement.” The first international pilot was in Ireland, in 2016.

With the government making much of the need for universities to connect with communities, this is smart stuff.
