Track Your Community Engagement Activities with Collaboratory

Facilitator: Paul Valdez, Associate Director, Center for Public Impact

This workshop is an opportunity to see a demonstration of a new online community engagement tracking system, Collaboratory, and to learn about how you can share the public impact story of your community engagement activities by using this tool. Collaboratory is a centralized online platform for reporting, tracking, and sharing community engagement and public service work conducted by faculty, staff, students, and their community partners This activity could be in the form of teaching, research, public service, programs, and other campus/community partnerships. Earlier this year BGSU invested in Collaboratory and the BGSU Center for Public Impact was identified as the managing unit. The Collaboratory platform has both an external and internal component, which enables users to curate a publicly accessible record of their community-engaged work, while also providing institutional data for university strategic development, assessment, and benchmarking.  The Collaboratory will enhance BGSU’s ability to share our public impact story by providing a centralized location in which public impact work across BGSU and the greater Northwest Ohio community can be reported and shared. It will also enable us to map partnerships, identifying community partners who are engaged with several collaborators at BGSU, as well as opportunities to develop new impactful partnerships.
