The Engaged University: A New Approach

Dogwood Room
Since the late 1990s, JMU has been quietly “preparing students to be educated and enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives,” just as our mission statement declares. In July 2014, however, we adopted a bold new strategic plan and vision to be the national model for the engaged university — engaged with ideas and the world. In this session, members of the Engaged University Council will explain our distinctive approach, which advances three separate, but related components of engagement (Engaged Learning, Civic Engagement, and Community Engagement), each with its own attendant knowledge, skills and dispositions.

The Citizen Soldier: An Enduring Ideal

Holly Room A 
Since its founding in 1839, the Virginia Military Institute has been committed to training cadets in the citizen soldier ideal – an ideal that inspires not only defense of the nation, but also devoted service to its citizenry. This ideal serves as the foundation for developing the intellect and molding the character of every cadet. In this session, members of the VMI administration and faculty will explain how its academic, military and co-curricular programs cooperate to foster in cadets the desire for lives characterized by personal responsibility, principled leadership and public service. 

Global Engagement: The Land-Grant Model
Holly Room B

Virginia Tech’s motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), provides both historical context and a current framework for the university’s global engagement efforts. As a land-grant university, Virginia Tech has built on its traditional extension infrastructure to advance community-based projects at the intersections of discovery, learning, and engagement. In this session, faculty affiliated with VT Engage will present an overview of the university’s engagement units, describe the university’s Aspirations for Student Learning, and highlight a service-focused living-learning community, global co-curricular service learning, and two national service programs.
