The University of Tennessee, Knoxville and the UT Institute of Agriculture recently submitted a joint application for the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification. This classification occurs on a five year cycle and requires an evidence-based documentation of institutional practice to be used in a self-assessment and quality improvement. As part of that process, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching goes through a process that involves collecting nominations from every college for the 50 exemplary partnerships that they will be promoting throughout the 2015 calendar year.
The School of Journalism and Electronic Media is honored to announce that Dr. Robert Heller and his students' project Eyes on LaFollette has been selected as one of the exemplars for the 2015 year. This project has been a continuation over twenty one years, and was displayed this fall at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.
