When you start to create an Activity, you are asked a series of questions that identifies your Activity, based on the information you shared, as either Public Service or Community Engagement. These designations help to organize data for institutional reports and build understanding of the kind of work underway.

In the event that an Activity is created with the incorrect type, Administrators are able to switch an Activity's designation in the Administration Panel:

  1. Navigate to the Administration Panel.
  2. Select Internal in the header, then select Activities from the left-hand sidebar.
  3. Select the Info button in the right-hand column of the table.
  4. In the popover, select the arrow next to the word community engagement or public service. Selecting the appropriate term will switch the Activity's designation.

If you are a faculty or staff member and believe that your Activity was incorrectly designated as either community engagement or public service, please contact your institution's Collaboratory Administrator.
