Vice President for Community Engagement

As Kentucky's metropolitan research university, UofL is addressing the needs and interests of our diverse communities locally, statewide, nationally and internationally.  UofL works with the community through engaged research, teaching, and service.


Community Engagement as defined by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.  View the full glossary.
