A Model for Creating Engaged Land-Grant Universities: Penn State's Engagement Ladder Model
Aronson, Keith R.; Webster, Nicole
Innovative Higher Education, v31 n5 p265-277 Mar 2007
The original mission of the state and land-grant university was to engage with communities to solve problems and improve the quality of life for the citizenry. Today most state and land-grant universities have moved far away from their original mission and are struggling to become engaged with the communities they serve. In this case study, we highlight some of the steady progress toward engagement that has recently occurred at The Pennsylvania State University. We catalogue how strong vision and leadership; infrastructure reorganization; and the active involvement of faculty, students, and community partners have revitalized the land-grant mission at Penn State.
