View Council meeting notes

The Outreach and Engagement Council was created in 2007 consistent with designating a new position as Vice Provost leading the Division of University Outreach and Engagement. Initial priorities included designing a strategic plan for this work and hosting a presidential commission that examined future opportunities. The intent of the Council is to provide integrated, campus-wide guidance to the Vice Provost around the following items:

  1. Advice and recommendations regarding implementation and future development of the OSU Outreach and Engagement Strategic Plan
  2. Development of policy options and implications from the perspective of unit represented
  3. Encourage and reward faculty innovation in developing, implementing and evaluating outreach and engagement activities
  4. Identify and prioritize opportunities to advance outreach and engagement including:
    • Issues and Needs
    • Partnerships
    • Resources
    • Approaches
    • Business models


Membership of the Council consists of one representative of each OSU college as designated by the respective dean. Additional members are considered based upon issues and recommendations of the Council. Members are appointed for two-year terms and may be re-appointed by a dean (for collegiate representatives) or the Vice Provost without limit. Terms are calendar year, January – December.
