A review of 2018 was exciting as the Office of Community Engagement and Outreach (OCEO) rolled out a new strategic plan. From the inaugural engagement and outreach conference to a series of engagement and outreach videos, we strive to be an engaged campus that creates and sustains a culture of scholarship, community building, and reciprocal partnerships. What should you expect in 2019? Partners should look forward to several new initiatives including an interactive map that highlights engagement projects across the state, Nonprofit Day, and a variety of professional development opportunities. As we continue to pursue the Carnegie Foundation recommendations, expand our reach to support faculty, and align with UT’s strategic plan we look forward to building new partnerships and providing the best resources to our campus and community partners.
