Community Engagement Partnerships
The purpose of the Community Engagement Partnerships data collection system is to capture, update and enable the University of Louisville to report on its engagement activities with local communities, the state, surrounding region and beyond. It will allow academic and administrative units to explore UofL partnership activities through a range of categories, and to extract and print reports. A Community Engagement Partnerships Record (CEPR) form should be completed for each partnership or collaborative relationship. Unit coordinators will be able to add new data, edit or update previously entered data, save and print partnership listings.
The system was developed with the support of the Office of Community Engagement, the Provost Office of Academic Planning & Accountability and Information Technology.
The CEPR data collection for 2011-2012 (Summer 2011, Fall 2011, Spring 2012) will begin March 1, and data can be submitted through April 15, 2012.
Definition of University-Community Engagement
