The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) convened a group of member institutions last spring to help make plans for a new Task Force on The New Engagement. The goal of the eventual task force is to establish a bold new vision for university engagement that is institution-wide—connecting across university purposes of teaching and learning, research and discovery, public service and outreach, and knowledge transfer—and that is transformational for universities as well as for the communities they serve.
The APLU Office of Economic Development and Community Engagement is requesting your help in making final plans for this Task Force. Please read the working group report on The New Engagement and provide commentary via the online feedback form no later than Friday, November 11th. The work APLU does is shaped in many ways by member institutions’ experiences with partners, communities, and society at large, which makes your voice critical to creating an inclusive Task Force.
