Preparing the application for the Carnegie Elective Classification on Community Engagement has been both exhilarating and challenging. The process provided an opportunity for members of the task force (Maureen McCarthy, Nancy Paschke, Kevin Railey, Laura Hill Rao, John Siskar, and Gary Welborn) to talk with people from across campus about the work they do related to community engagement. It was rewarding to learn more about the engagement work being done on campus. We are proud to be members of this special community.
The organization of the application created challenging choices as we attempted to capture the diversity, richness, and depth of community engagement activities at Buffalo State. The application looks for both depth and breadth...all within little 500-word boxes. So we had a wonderful story to tell, but we faced uncomfortable constraints on how to tell that story. Nevertheless, the task force was committed to submitting a strong application and worked hard to get the language right
