Thriving Together: Considering “Place” as a Transformative Opportunity for University Engagement
A learning session for university leaders
This session, which took place January 25th, 2022, was designed to help university and public engagement leaders ask and answer a number of key questions, including:
- Who are we as an institution, and what kind of engagement identity should we nurture given our distinctive mission, history, culture, and place?
- How does a consideration of "place" help us conceive of mutually beneficial relationships between our institution and the communities & publics that we serve?
- In what ways might engagement be employed as a strategy to attract and sustain support for this institution?
- How do we tell this story to prospective students, alumni, and other key stakeholders?
