This panel brings together institutional leaders who have responsibilities to initiate, support, expand and sustain community engagement across the university. Facilitated by a moderator, panelists will engage in a dialogue together and with participants about challenges faced, strategies tried, successes achieved, and failures that have provided critical insights. Our dialogue will seek to draw out the diversity of experiences and perspectives as we approach our work. We will discuss the roles and efforts of institutional administrators and faculty leaders to: (a) transition faculty and institutional culture from autonomous individualized agendas to collaborative collective trajectories; (b) design programs and strategic initiatives to encourage interdisciplinary teams that align to strategic plans; and (c) track and measure institutional teaching and research activities and strengths as they align to community-identified priorities. Dr. Emily Janke (University of North Carolina Greensboro) will moderate the panel. Panelists include scholars who currently hold or have held senior administrative leadership positions at urban and metropolitan campuses, including Drs. Barbara Holland (formerly at Portland State University, Northern Kentucky University, University of Western Sydney, and the University of Sydney), Valerie Holton (Virginia Commonwealth University), Brenda Kowalewski (Weber State University), and Terri Shelton (University of North Carolina Greensboro).
