Dear Faculty and Staff,

As President Harker and I recently announced, a special task force has been established here at the University of Delaware to gather and organize information as UD prepares to apply to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to obtain "Community Engagement Classification." The University has a rich tradition of working in partnership with a variety of groups and organizations in Delaware and across the globe, and this task force is developing ways of measuring these involvements on a systematic and ongoing basis.

To assist the task force, I ask that all faculty and staff spend just a few minutes completing an important online survey, which can be found here. The information you provide will not only contribute to our application to Carnegie, but will help us refine UD’s model of an "Engaged University," which is one of six milestones in the Path to Prominence strategic plan. I hope I can count on your participation.


Domenico Grasso
