Seizing the Moment: Creating a Changed Society and University through Outreach
Ramaley, Judith
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v8 n1 p13-27 2003
This conference is built on two very interesting premises; first, that university outreach can change society and second, that outreach can also change the university. What is the mechanism by which this mutual influence can offer? What does the university offer the community, and what does the community offer the university? The short answer is--the opportunity to learn in the company of others in a situation where learning has consequences. [Keynote Address presented at the "Outreach Scholarship 2002 Conference": Catalyst for Change", Worthington, Ohio, Oct 6-8, 2002]
