Has the institution adopted a framework for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy and operations?:

A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

Both of the main community stakeholder groups on campus, the Center for Civic Engagement and Service Learning, as well as the Place Studies Program of the Bucknell Environmental Center both present community partners with agreements of association. In these agreements, expectations of the interactions between University officials and community stakeholder groups are stated. Neither entity, to my knowledge, uses a formalized framework that has been developed at the University level. Rather, the procedures and policies are decentralized.

A brief description of how the institution identifies and engages community stakeholders, including any vulnerable or underrepresented groups:

Community-based research projects all undergo IRB approval. In this way, vulnerable or underrepresented groups are protected.
