From Outreach to Engagement to Scholarship: An Evolution.
Howard-Vital, Michelle; Edmundson, James; Thompson, Hunter
Over a 10-year period, the leadership at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington was instrumental in transforming a local university into a regional university that continues to evolve as a university that is engaged with diverse and various constituencies. Focusing on the role of the chancellor in spearheading the Universitys transition from merely articulating an outreach mission to more widespread practice of regional engagement, this paper recounts this evolution. Three engagement activities are detailed as examples of partnerships with specific constituencies in the region and internationally. These are: (1) the Global Virtual University, part of a Digital Communities Project with Japanese partners; (2) the Southeastern Public Interest Network of North Carolina, which provides an interactive Internet portal to offer services and information to more than 450 nonprofit organizations; and (3) the Executive Development Center, a state-of-the-art center for education and training.
