The Engaged Institution, the Twenty-First Century, and the New University Extension
Reilly, Kevin P.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v8 n1 p29-36 2003
The National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges' Kellogg Commission notes the perception that "despite the resources and expertise available on our campuses, our institutions are not well organized to bring them to bear on local problems in a coherent way." This article suggests some organizational patterns and relationships that address the problem, with examples drawn from several major universities. It also presents a vision of how a re-energized, repositioned, comprehensive extension and outreach function can burnish the reputation and performance of an institution committed to fulfilling the promise of engagement.
