Collaborative for Community Engagement Database

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

The CCE database is a collaboration between different entities on campus in order to solidify, strengthen, and expand the college's relationships with the community. The Office of Sustainability, the Career Center, the CCE and every facet of campus that interacts with the outside community will both contribute and utilize the database. The database will record which party at each organization the college is working with, the number of hours they are engaged in work, and the goals of the projects. The database will organize and institutionalize the college's community engagement, log community service hours, and strengthen relationships.

A brief description of any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation (if not reported above):

The CCE database will result in an accurate measure of campus-wide community engagement hours, which we currently estimate. Organizations will become documented partners with the college, ensuring their future involvement with groups on campus and their commitment from the school. The database will have a clear list of partner organizations which can be referenced for future outreach. The database will allow for more organized, thoughtful outreach that can become campus-wide as opposed to office or group specific. The database will provide a platform to expand community engagement for the future.
