UW-Green Bay is one of only 40 U.S. Colleges and Universities to receive this designation
The American Council on Education (ACE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching announced that UW-Green Bay has been selected to receive the 2024 Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, an elective designation that indicates institutional commitment to community engagement.
“We recognize these institutions for their exceptional commitment to community engagement, and their work to transform knowledge into meaningful action,” said Timothy Knowles, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. “They exemplify the true spirit of the Carnegie endorsement and the power of serving the public good.”
“We are honored to be recognized for the first time by the ACE and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching with this designation,” said University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander. “This is significant for our institution and validates the progress we have made in this area since we established community engagement as one of our six strategic priorities as an institution. We know the benefits of learning through community engagement and also what it does to foster tremendous pride in the region we serve.”
The Carnegie Community Engagement Classification has been the leading framework for institutional assessment and recognition of community engagement in U.S. higher education for the past 19 years with classification cycles in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2015, 2020, and now 2024.
