Community Engagement Reporting

Overview of Community Engagement Reporting

Partnership and outreach projects are where students, staff, and/or faculty engage with external local, state, national or international partners in ongoing efforts, with a focus on a community need or issue. Partnership projects are typically of mutual benefit to both the partner organization and the university, providing opportunities for faculty, staff and students to participate in community-based learning, research or service.

The purpose of the Community Engagement Partnership data collection system is to enable the University of Louisville to report on its outreach and engagement activities. It allows academic and administrative units to explore UofL partnership activities through a range of categories, and to share reports about the work we do with the community. The database provides information that demonstrates the ways in which faculty, staff, and students are partnering with the community and the ways in which the university serves the local community, the state, the region, the nation and around the world.

This data is critical for reporting on Community Engagement across the institution and is used for reporting and assessment processes related to the President’s 2020 Plan Scorecard, the SACS Institutional Accreditation process, and for affirmation as Carnegie Foundation Community Engagement University.

Data collection for the 2015-2016 academic year (Summer 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016) ends on April 30, 2016.  Please have all partnership data entered by this time.
