The Carnegie Classification of Community Engagement has served to recognize institutions of higher education and their commitment to the development, support, and assessment to community engaged activities. Institutions of higher education seeking to acquire the classification are voluntarily initiating a planned change intervention directed at making community engagement part of their mission through alignment with the institution’s strategic plan. Under Porras and Silvers’ (1991) model of planned change, there are two types of planned change interventions: Organization Development and Organizational Transformation. Under this model, Organization Development deals with work settings, including organizing arrangements, social factors, technologies and physical settings. Organization Transformation deals with vision, which includes guiding beliefs and principles, purpose, and mission. In order for transformational change to be realized and maintained, individual organizational members must also experience cognitive change (Porras & Silvers, 1991). Therefore, it is important for faculty to be involved in any university intention to promote sustainable change. For this reason, Florida Atlantic University has developed the Community Engagement Liaison Program (CELP) at the college level. This program has taught us how purposive structuration of co-op committees can be helpful in initiating both organization development and transformation. The program was initially developed to assess the extent of community-engaged activity of the colleges, however it soon evolved into a holistic resource for organizational transformation as it involves faculty members at the core of our community engagement initiatives. At FAU, we seek to experience a transformational change (OT) as a result of participating in the Carnegie Classification process.
