Community Engagement

Curricular Engagement

As the Carnegie Foundation Classification describes, Curricular Engagement is:

  • Institutions where teaching, learning, and scholarship engage faculty, students, and community in mutually beneficial and respectful collaboration.
  • Interactions that...
    • address community identified needs,
    • deepen students' civic and academic learning,
    • enhance community well-being, and
    • enrich the scholarship of the institution.

Some examples of Curricular Engagement at GVSU include:
