Portland State University has a long established community engagement tradition that has brought alive what it means to be an urban serving institution. Engagement is evidenced in the institution’s teaching and research and has been a key high impact practice that serves as a hallmark of the PSU experience. Ryukoku University in Kyoto, Japan has a community engagement agenda that is inspired by the Kyoto Alliance. Using a learning community model Portland State and Ryukoku University faculty and staff are sharing their community engagement practices and teaching each other some powerful lessons about how to best advance our work. We will provide some best practices across cultures and will provide some data that illustrates the power of community engagement as a high impact practice.
