Each year, the Center for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL) reports on the number of students participating in community-engaged learning at Michigan State University. It is important that this information be collected campus-wide and represent all colleges, departments, programs, and projects. Our institutional mission is, in part, fulfilled by the meaningful connections we have with communities. Through the scholarship of teaching and our community partnerships, we play an important role in preparing students for lifelong civic and social responsibility and contributing to the vitality and health of communities.    
It is essential that we share our community-engaged learning data and stories with the MSU community, the public, and to our potential students and families. We ask that administrators, faculty members, and staff members complete the 2019-2020 Community-Engaged Learning Questionnaire  (covering summer 2019, fall 2019, and spring 2020 semesters). The deadline for completing this questionnaire has been extended to Friday, September 11, 2020. This short questionnaire should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
In an effort to recognize the work of our colleagues and highlight exemplary programs and projects, the CCEL publishes the MSU Community-Engaged Learning Index using the data collected annually from the Community-Engaged Learning Questionnaire. You may view the 2016-2018 Community Engaged Learning Index here.  If you like you may preview the questionnaire in advance.
Thank you for your assistance in identifying and recognizing the outstanding engaged experiences in which 80% of MSU students participate as they become globally engaged citizens.
