Among the coalition of Engage NJ campuses and partners, we have set a goal of identifying and then showcasing a set of competencies that are developed through a range of high-quality community engagement pathways and are transferrable to behaviors of the engaged citizen and skilled worker.

Beginning in the academic year 2023, we will convene a task force to spend the first several months developing a deep understanding of these transferable competencies. We will consider such questions as:

  • What characteristics of an engaged citizen are similarly useful to those being sought by employers across a variety of sectors?

  • What behaviors advance democracy are also behaviors that address the biggest struggles of this generation, such as fighting against the impacts of climate change in marginalized communities?
