We developed an online Community Engagement  Map leveraging SAVI, in partnership with  the IUPUI Office of Community Engagement (OCE).  We linked data from SAVI and IUPUI’s Collaboratory (a database of in-depth information entered by students, faculty and staff about ways they are engaged with the community.) to continually update an online searchable map that depicts the location of select IUPUI engagement activities in the surrounding communities as well as socioeconomic conditions, demographics and community assets. The map and narrated data stories engage stakeholders for more strategic multi-disciplinary collaboration to address pressing community issues with the goal of improving quality of life for central Indiana residents.
