Since 2006, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the National Outreach Scholarship Conference, with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, have partnered to recognize the outreach and engagement partnerships of four-year public universities. The award recognizes programs that demonstrate how colleges and universities have redesigned their learning, discovery and engagement functions to become even more involved with their communities.
A committee administered by the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach will recommend one applicant to be UGA’s nominee for the Southern region.
To apply, send a 500-word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 3 that summarizes the outreach and engagement partnership; the issue and its significance for the relationship between the university and community, including the reciprocity of the relationship; the partnership’s impact on the community partner(s), and on the university partners; the lessons learned and best practices from the partnership; and future plans for the partnership.
The applicant selected to be UGA’s nominee will be asked to complete the full nomination packet by early March to meet APLU’s April 4 entry deadline.
For questions, contact Paul Brooks, associate vice president for public service and outreach, at 706-542-6167 or email@example.com.
