Engagement at the University of Notre Dame

The Community Engagement Coordinating Council seeks to establish and deepen a culture of community engagement at the University of Notre Dame, recognized as an 'Engaged Institution' by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 2010. "Community engagement" refers to the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. Such engagement emanates directly from the University’s Catholic ethos and character and builds on the rich assets of its students, faculty, staff, and community partners.  

“Recognition from the Carnegie Foundation is one of the best markers of progress in the field of higher education,” according to Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., Notre Dame’s president. “Eminently consistent with the University’s mission and Catholic character, classification as an institution of Community Engagement affirms Notre Dame’s efforts to address challenges and improve the quality of life in communities near and far.”
