Expanded Outreach at Clemson University. A Case Study.
Bennett, A. Wayne
This paper summarizes recent strategic planning activities at Clemson University, focusing on outreach and extended education goals at the university. Specific benchmarks for outreach and extended education include: (1) by May 1994, each department will develop an operational definition of its public service mission, an action plan to integrate public service, teaching, and research, and a consistent reward system; (2) by May 1994, each vice presidential area will develop avenues for public service by staff; (3) by May 1996, a university-wide, incentive-based system to facilitate the initiation and effective conduct of interdisciplinary academic and research programs will be established; (4) by May 1997, a computer-based, community-access network will be established to provide direct linkage to each academic unit; and (5) by May 1998, as part of degree requirements, every student will have worked with faculty or staff on a research or public service project, or have participated in an internship, cooperative, or clinical education program. The outreach and extended education goals and activities of Alliance 2020, a partnership involving Clemson University, South Carolina State University, and the State Technical College System, are also reviewed.
