VCU-UNITE: Identifying Recognition Mechanisms for University-Community Engagement

The purpose of this project was to determine what process would be appropriate to recognize significant contributions of university and community partners to joint community engagement projects. This project sought to determine the awareness and extent of involvement of VCU faculty, staff and students in community engagement projects, and to find out what format of recognition process would be appealing to both university and community participants.
