Developed in 2013, the Strategic Engagement Council (SEC) is the responsible party for the university-wide Business Engagement Strategy, Civic Engagement Strategy, and other related initiatives. The council sets priorities on campus and maintains alignment and symmetry relative to the university's role and mission. President Matthew Holland chairs the SEC with management support provided by the VP for University Relations.
The Strategic Engagement Council oversees coordination and partnerships between university units and key community organizations. It serves as the primary strategic body in response to the needs and potential resources of local businesses, civic, and governmental organizations. The council is comprised of university leaders responsible for university-wide academic and community engagement activities.
The Strategic Engagement Council seeks to build strong and lasting partnerships with community organizations and programs. In the effort to expand engaged learning opportunities for our students, the university will continue to develop customized and mutually beneficial collaborations with corporations, non-profit, and governmental organizations.
