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:

The University of Richmond's Bonner Center for Civic Engagement has adopted "full participation" as a guiding principle for its community engagement work, which includes consistently inviting community stakeholders into discussions about planning and priorities.

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

The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) defines full participation as "an inclusive approach that seeks out and considers diverse perspectives, recognizes participants as whole people, and invites individuals to contribute meaningfully." This principle is applied to the selection of community stakeholders for participation on the CCE's Advisory Council (a body with faculty, staff, student, and significant community representation), and to the engagement of new and sustained partners.
