We will strive to:

  • Gain full presidential commitment to an agreed charter and course of action

  • Award annual seed grants to member campus teams based on indicators of the engaged campus

  • Design annual awards that bring recognition to civic leaders’ efforts and impacts with respect to the engaged campus

  • Provide ongoing and targeted professional development based on expressed campus need

  • Convene faculty annually through statewide symposia to demonstrate teaching, research, and impact on the social good

SUCCESS WILL BE MEASURED BY

  • The number of campuses, faculty, staff, students, community partners, and presidents active with measurable elements of the Member Engagement Plan

  • In order to target a level of the pervasiveness of this work across the state, we will benchmark success relative to the number of campuses engaged being greater than 30
