The Engaged Department Toolkit
This handbook is designed to help departments develop strategies for including community-based work in their teaching and scholarship, making community-based experiences a standard expectation for majors, and encouraging civic engagement and progressive change at the departmental level. It acts as both a resource and a curriculum, assisting others in replicating the Engaged Department Institutes offered nationwide by Campus Compact. The toolkit comes with a CD-ROM with key information from the text as well as PowerPoint slides and sample documents that can be adapted to meet the needs of individual departments.

One with the Community
Indicators of Engagement at Minority-Serving Institutions
Based on the findings of a multi-year research project, this volume profiles successful community engagement practices at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), and tribal colleges. Engagement levels at these institutions outstrip levels seen elsewhere on nearly every measure; the innovative ways these institutions put engagement into practice offer models for all of higher education. In addition to examining organizational structures, curricular approaches, institutional culture, and partnering strategies that support local communities, the book offers a comprehensive self-assessment tool to help campuses evaluate and deepen their own engagement practices. This book is the second volume produced as part of Campus Compacts Indicators of Engagement Project; the first is The Community's College: Indicators of Engagement at Two-Year Institutions.
