The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the State's land-grant and flagship research institution, defines academic outreach and engagement as integrated scholarship which engages its academic missions of research, creativity, teaching and service with its community. This engagement is a reciprocal relationship which informs and shapes the academic mission and extends the University's intellectual resources to serve its constituents.
The Academic Outreach and Engagement Council promotes the university's land grant mission by encouraging excellence in outreach scholarship through teaching, research, and service to our constituents, by encouraging excellence in engagement that is transformative for the academic and public communities, and by advocating policies that reward and recognize faculty engaged in academic outreach and engagement.
