This study explores the indicators of university-community engagement and their implications to evaluation. Through an examination of 47 studies, we validate that university-community engagement can unfold in many ways and impact many stakeholders, and that, evaluation focusing only on university perspectives might leave out the community perspective which is equally important. We developed a conceptual framework consisting of three domains of university-community engagement, namely purpose, process and community impacts. These domains offer a comprehensive evaluation of university-community engagement from a community perspective. We then identify the key performance indicators under these domains and the implications of these indicators to evaluation. We found out some existing limitations on methodology and on quantifying indicators. Based on the findings, we recommend that the selection of indicators should consider a variety of activities and impacts to allow comprehensive evaluation. Also, methodologies be continually refined to keep up with changing phenomena.
