Community & Stakeholder Relationships

A 21st Century university must be highly engaged with its community and its stakeholders to remain relevant and serve the needs of society. Examine the role of community and stakeholder relationships in undergraduate education, graduate education, research and creative activity and service to community and state in the context of the overarching goal of becoming an emerging research university with an unparalleled commitment to student success, closing gaps in achievement and delivering a robust campus experience. Through that examination, propose university-wide goals as well as the actions needed to achieve those goals. Attention should also be paid to promoting efficiency and effectiveness.  Include time frames for expected attainment of goals and actions, proposed assessment and targets for goals, and estimates of human, physical and financial resources required.
