Based on the findings of a multi-year research project, this volume profiles successful community engagement practices and programs at community colleges across the country. Designed to provide both two- and four-year institutions with specific guidance on creating an engaged campus, it explores institutional culture, organizational structures, enabling mechanisms, curricular issues, and partnering strategies as avenues to community and civic engagement. Also included is a comprehensive self-assessment tool to help campuses evaluate and deepen their own engagement practices.
