Collaboratory - Track • Report • Connect • Plan

Many Central faculty, students and staff participate in collaborative activities throughout the year that address pressing social issues via teaching, research, creative activities, outreach, and service.

Collaboratory is a searchable, online database that collects information about these activities to help us understand the extent of Central's engagement in and with the community. This information can be viewed by internal and external members of the institution. It improves our ability to tell our institutional community engagement story--the who, what, where, when, and to what end.

Collaboratory supports Central’s efforts to become more responsive, innovative, and more effective at connecting faculty, staff, and community partners around shared community-identified priorities and issues of concern.

We invite you to take a few minutes to:
