Based on the findings of a multi-year research project, this volume profiles successful community engagement practices at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), and tribal colleges. Engagement levels at these institutions outstrip levels seen elsewhere on nearly every measure; the innovative ways these institutions put engagement into practice offer models for all of higher education. In addition to examining organizational structures, curricular approaches, institutional culture, and partnering strategies that support local communities, the book offers a comprehensive self-assessment tool to help campuses evaluate and deepen their own engagement practices. This book is the second volume produced as part of Campus Compacts Indicators of Engagement Project; the first is The Community's College: Indicators of Engagement at Two-Year Institutions.

By Edward Zlotkowski, Rosalyn Jacobs Jones, Margarita Maria Lenk, Jennifer Meeropol, Sherril B. Gelmon, and Katrina H. Norvell.
