Outreach and Engagement at Tennessee State University
Chesney, Clyde E.; Samuel, Javiette; Fuller, Deena Sue
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v13 n3 p67-88 2009
Tennessee State University has a rich history of public service and civic engagement--thus the motto "Think, Work, Serve." Founded in 1912, Tennessee State University has grown dramatically from a small college to two campuses. We actively engage in adhering to the cornerstone of the land-grant universities: teaching, research, and outreach. Our charge is "Enter to learn, Go forth" to serve. We take seriously our responsibility to relate academic work to communities in ways that are mutually beneficial. Collaborative work in and with communities is consistent with the goal that we are a model urban university, provide leadership to others in all facets of integrating service with teaching and research, and engage educators, staff, and students in activities that benefit their communities as well as themselves. We aim to distinguish ourselves nationally as a campus that creates interdisciplinary approaches to generating and communicating knowledge that meaningfully contributes to the well-being of society.
