Strategic Plan

2017 Strategic Plan for Community Engagement


This strategic plan for community engagement emanates from a broadly informed and systematically conducted review of an initial strategic plan of the CECC. This second plan represents the expertise, insight, and input of many individuals, including faculty, staff, administrators, and community members.

Highlights of the Strategic Plan: Four Goals

  • Community-University Collaborations: Build and sustain active partnerships that are focused on effectively addressing areas of mutually beneficial interest.
  • Faculty, Staff, and Student Development: Enhance and expand academic community engagement of faculty, staff, and students.
  • Communication: Use creative strategies to more effectively communicate engagement opportunities and impacts with internal and external audiences. Use stories and collected data to enhance the coordination and impact of Notre Dame’s activities
  • Infrastructure: Deepen and expand University infrastructure to support and coordinate academic community engagement.
