"Public Engagement" 


Public engagement is the application for the public good of the knowledge and expertise of a faculty or staff member to issues of societal importance. Typically, this activity is done in collaboration with others both within and outside of the university. 

The activity may enrich research and teaching as well as lead to new directions within the university. Public engagement falls under the service mission of the university."
