Register now for a free webinar on the topic of executive leadership transitions and the actions needed to sustain momentum for community-engagement. The webinar will feature Lorilee Sandmann, professor emerita with the University of Georgia, and Diann Jones, clinical assistant professor with the University of Georgia.
The March 4 webinar will also preview themes to be covered at this year's Engagement Academy for University Leaders, set for June 1-4 at the University of Minnesota campus. The academy is designed for executives and teams responsible for developing institutional capacity for community engagement. Participants develop institutional plans for engagement and return to their campuses with the ability to advance their plan as well as effectively link community engagement to the teaching, research, and service missions of the institution.
