To support Cornell’s strategic goal of “Excellence in Public Engagement,” the Provost established a campus-wide Public Engagement Council comprised of senior staff and tenured faculty. The Council is co-chaired by the Vice Provost and the Provost’s Fellows for Public Engagement and is advisory to the Vice Provost and Provost.
The Council’s charges include:
- the continued articulation and assessment of a contemporary vision for public engagement that builds on Cornell’s strengths and on knowledge with a public purpose
- the enhancement of relationships that support university-wide collaboration on publicly engaged research, teaching, and service
- the promotion of public engagement at Cornell in ways that fulfill our land grant mission to New York State
Note / December 2021
The Public Engagement Council is currently on hiatus as its charge and membership are under review.
