Engaged Institutions: A Commitment to Service. Profiles and Data. Third Working Paper.
Kellogg Commission on the Future of State and Land Grant Universities, Washington, DC.; National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.
This document profiles ten higher education institutions across the United States, documenting their roles as "engaged institutions," that is, institutions whose goal it is to produce graduates ready to move along a path of self-directed learning and growth. They are "interactive institutions" that have developed partnerships with civic, business, and political leaders to build better communities. Each profile provides a brief history of the school and its historical mission, provides data on funding and organization, discusses faculty roles, and describes its outreach programs. The profiles illustrate student and faculty community involvement; how cooperative extension programs have been expanded to serve a larger public; and how curriculums are being modified to make institutions more student-centered. Profiles are provided for: (1) Arizona State University; (2) Iowa State University; (3) Ohio State University; (4) Pennsylvania State University; (5) Portland (Oregon) State University; (6) Rutgers the State University of New Jersey; (7) Salish Kootenai College and the Flathead Indian Reservation; (8) Tuskegee University (Alabama); (9) University of California Davis; (10) University of Illinois at Chicago; and (11) University of Vermont.
