The Community Engagement Professional in Higher Education
A Competency Model for an Emerging Field
This book, offered by “practitioner-scholars,” is an exploration and identification of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that are central to supporting effective community engagement practices between higher education and communities. The discussion and review of these core competencies are framed within a broader context of the changing landscape of institutional community engagement and the emergence of the Community Engagement Professional as a facilitator of engaged teaching, research, and institutional partnerships distinct from other academic professionals. This research, conducted as part of Campus Compact’s Project on the Community Engagement Professional, seeks to identify the shared knowledge and practices of Community Engagement Professionals by looking to empirical practice literature. Chapters include an exploration of competencies applicable to those in Community Engagement Professional roles generally, and also to those specializing in specific areas such as faculty development, partnership facilitation, and other areas of responsibility. The authors trace the evolution of engagement administration over time and the role of those facilitating community-campus engagement toward a “Second Generation” professional who is at once a “tempered radical, transformational leader, and social entrepreneur.” Central to the work is a presentation of the core competency findings, along with suggestions for continued exploration. Dostilio and her colleagues argue that Community Engagement Professionals should claim a professional identity grounded in a set of core competencies, values, and knowledge, and through association with a community of scholar practitioners similarly dedicated. Additional work to understand and empower Community Engagement Professionals in their role as distinct from other higher education professional types will enable both broader impact for institutions and communities now with a view to prepare those coming to the role for a dynamic and demanding environment without distinct boundaries.

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.
