The Council on Engagement and Outreach (CEO)
is composed of university administrators responsible for outreach, engagement, community development, extension, and other functions at their universities. The council provides formal and informal forums for members to discuss and take action on issues relevant to the array of institutional efforts in public service, outreach, and community engagement. CEO also supports members in developing plans, programs, and policies related to outreach, engagement, extended education, community relations, engaged scholarship, service learning, extension, and a variety of other activities that create university impact in communities. The council works closely with the Commission on Innovation, Competitiveness, and Economic Prosperity
on issues related to regional and economic development.
