faculty forum on outreach & engagement

About Faculty Forum

CEO’s Faculty Forum on Outreach and Engagement encourages the development of a community of practice among U-M faculty.

The Faculty Forum shares ideas, innovations, and best practices that serve to extend the reach of the University beyond the campus. Periodic lectures, presentations, and articles from faculty, staff and leaders in the field are offered to the University community.

Faculty Forum was featured in the University Record for it’s exceptional work!

“Our Faculty Forum offers a very special space on campus to exchange ideas, practices and inspire faculty to engage in the exciting and challenging world of outreach!”
