The Public Engagement Action Planning Work Group's charge is to recalibrate the Twin Cities campus' public engagement agenda and develop a set of action steps for furthering the institutionalization of reciprocal, public engagement over the next five years. The action plan will incorporate recommendations and goals identified in the following sources:
- public engagement-related goals contained in the Twin Cities ten-year strategic plan: Driving Tomorrow;
- Campus Compact 30th Anniversary Action Statement of Presidents and Chancellors (signed by President Kaler);
- recommendations for advancing public engagement-related policies, infrastructure, and culture, submitted by participants of the systemwide conference, Meeting Grand Challenges through Community-Engaged Research and Teaching;
- recommendations for improvement, contained in the Twin Cities Carnegie Community Engagement Classification review report;
- faculty recommendations on improving faculty rewards for engaged scholars; and,
- recommendations submitted by academic units, centers, and individuals.
The work of the Public Engagement Action Planning Work Group builds on the work conducted as a result of the University's Ten-Point Plan for Advancing and Institutionalizing Public Engagement. Produced in 2008, the Ten-Point Plan articualtes a set of action steps designed to secure the full integration of public engagement at the University of Minnesota.
