Faculty Forum on Outreach and Engagement

CEO’s Faculty Forum on outreach and engagement encourages the development of a community of practice among faculty and staff at U-M. Through the Faculty Form, faculty and staff share 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.

Suggestions of topics, guest speakers, or other related activities are welcome. These can be shared with CEO at
