Elizabethtown Recognized by Carnegie Foundation

T he Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching recognized the College with its Community Engage-ment Classification in December 2010. The Carnegie Classifications are the leading framework for recognizing and describing institutional diversity in U.S. higher education. The Community Engagement Classification is an “elective” classification that institutions earn by submitting required documentation describing the nature and extent of their community engagement. First awarded in 2006, the recognition has been bestowed on only 310 colleges and universities,

nationwide, that have demonstrated institutional practices of community engagement showing alignment among mission, culture, leadership, resources and practices.

Director for the Center of Community and Civic Engagement Nancy Fritz Valkenburg ’71 believes this recognition is a result of the College’s continuing commitment to “Educate for Service.”

“It is an honor to be included among the national leaders in community engagement,” reflects Valkenburg. “With our mission statement reflecting our belief that ‘learning is most noble when used to benefit others,’ community engagement is certainly what Elizabethtown College is all about.”
