As we approach the April 15, 2019 deadline of the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification application, the Swearer Center team, the administrative home of the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, is hosting two webinars to offer some last thoughts and answer any questions you may have at this stage.

These webinars are specifically designed for campuses that are in the process of putting together their application - for first-time and re-classification - for the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification.
