In this time of unprecedented global economic competition, expectations have grown for higher education to be relevant and responsive to critical societal issues. During the last decade, higher education leaders have used the term engagement to describe a renewed relationship between higher education and the public it serves, and increasing numbers of funders, accreditation agencies, and classification systems treat public engagement as a measure of quality in higher education.

The Engagement Leadership Academy will:

1) Develop a new generation of leaders for public engagement and outreach functions,

2) Foster professional leadership skills to engage higher education institutions in the broader society

3) Promote institutional outcomes related to discovery, learning and engagement.
