University Outreach Council (UOC)

About UOC

Established in 2008 by CEO, the University Outreach Council (UOC) consists of U-M faculty and staff representing schools, colleges and units involved in educational outreach and engagement initiatives. Through once-monthly meetings, annual programs, and ongoing networking, this community at U-M shares best practices about educational outreach and engagement, offers expertise and guidance to promote educational outreach and engagement, and enhances collaboration and coordination of educational outreach efforts across campus.

“UOC is an intentional community open to all at the University who want to learn more about outreach, have a platform to share their key insights, and work together to further strengthen the K-12 impact of the University.”
