18 Jul The pilot process of the Carnegie Community Engagement Network and Classification in Australia
Listen from the Director of the Carnegie Community Engagement Network Australia, Mitra Gusheh, about the pilot experience of the Classification in Australia during 2019/2020. Hear about the learnings and the result of the process.
The classification was first offered in 2006 and has been the leading framework for institutional assessment and recognition of community engagement in US higher education since its inception. A total of 361 institutions in the US are currently classified as Carnegie Community Engaged Campuses. The American Council of Education (ACE) acts as the administrative and research host institution for the classification.
In 2016 the classification began its process of internationalisation with pilot programs being implemented in Ireland, Canada and Australia. And since 2023, the Classification has been officially implemented in Australia with the first Universities classifying.
