Recognition And Distinctions

The Carnegie Community Engagement Classification

Carnegie logo

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching designates Millersville University as one of the 361 U.S. colleges and universities for its Community Engagement Classification. 

Colleges and universities with an institutional focus on community engagement are invited to apply for the classification, first offered in 2006 as part of an extensive restructuring of The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Unlike the foundation’s other classifications that rely on national data, this is an “elective” classification—institutions elect to participate by submitting required documentation describing the nature and extent of their engagement with the community, be it local or beyond. 

The Newman Civic Fellows Award

Through service, research, and advocacy, Newman Civic Fellows are making the most of their college experiences to better understand themselves, the root causes of social issues, and effective mechanisms for creating lasting change. These students represent the next generation of public problem solvers and civic leaders. They serve as national examples of the role that higher education can—and does—play in building a better world.
