This panel discussion will encompass community outreach issues from varying perspectives. Panel members have positions that involve community outreach for their university; their experiences range from 1-3 years to over 16 years and somewhere in between. Some of their corresponding universities already have Carnegie designation and others are working towards it. They will converge to hold a frank discussion about a variety of issues that impact community engagement and forward motion such as: the challenges of outreach, sustainability, endowments, funding and funding structures; university org charts-who reports to whom, number of staff, role of the president, the provost; communication strategies, evaluation and measuring impact; engaging faculty and students (i.e., traditional, non-traditional, commuters, online students); managing leadership change on campus and/or in the community; and more. Discussion will also touch on lessons learned, forward planning and dealing with naysayers, both on campus and in the community. There will be plenty of time for Q & A and shared best practices for all those who are charged with connecting campus and community. Come to listen, learn and share.
