Binghamton University has a long standing commitment to community engagement and would like to apply for the 2015 Carnegie community engagement classification. Although the community engagement classification provides national recognition for institutions' commitment to community engagement, the application process is intensive and nearly half of 305 institutions registered withdrew from the application process in 2010. In an effort to increase Binghamton University's success in achieving the 2015 Carnegie classification, the Capstone project examined institutional characteristics that were associated with successful attainment o 2010 Carnegie classification for applicant universities.
