Carnegie Community Engagement Classification

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching  selected 119 U.S. colleges and universities for its 2008 Community Engagement Classification. Daemen College was one of six institutions in New York State to receive this elective classification.  Daemen's application documented both Curricular Engagement describing teaching, learning and scholarship which engage faculty, students and community in mutually beneficial and respectful collaboration, and Outreach and Partnerships describing two different but related approaches to community engagement: one focusing on the application of institutional resources for community use with benefits to campus and community; the second focusing on collaborative interactions with communities and related scholarship.

In Daemen, I took ESL classes to improve my English. I worked at Canavan Desk and made a lot of friends over there. I participated in a Business dinner with my professors. I was invited to join a family party by my professors. During the weekends, I often take the school shuttle to the shopping mall. These experiences helped me to ease into the American-style of study, life, and business.
