Collaboratory: A Tool to Highlight and Track Community Engagement

Collaboratory is a database of in-depth information on community engagement activities, primarily entered by faculty and staff. Collaboratory captures the whole spectrum of community engagement and public service activities including course-based engagement, student volunteering, community involved research, and other types of community engaged outreach and public service. This database allows UW-Superior to understand the full extent to which we are accomplishing goals related to our work in and with the community.

Track: The information collected by the database will increase understanding of the depth and breadth of our work and partnerships.

Report: With all institutional community engagement organized in one database, information will be readily accessible for robust reporting, grant writing and accreditation purposes.

Share: The easily accessible data can be used to acknowledge the singular and collective great community engagement work taking place publicly, with UW System, and legislators.

Connect: We want to connect your work with others at the institution. These connections can lead to deepening the impact in the community and with other individuals, programs or divisions.

Plan: Data can be pulled into reports for individual course sections, programs, centers, departments, and on a University level to support strategic decisions and plans around community engagement and public service efforts.

We want to hear how your class, research, student organization or department is engaging with the community. Please enter your community engagement activities within Collaboratory.
