Land-Grant Symposium
A Call to Action: How Can Land-Grant Universities Better Serve the Public?
A systemwide symposium led by Stephen M. Gavazzi, author of "Land-Grant Universities for the Future", with an introduction by WSU President Kirk Schulz
May 7, 2019
7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
See "How to Attend" page for location details 
How can Washington State University evolve to better serve the public? Is enough emphasis place on high-quality teaching? Can the University improve its engagement with communities statewide? Does the public know about the benefits of WSU-led research?
WSU's role as the land-grant institution for the state of Washington establishes our responsibility to serve the public with excellent teaching, research, and service. How can we more effectively fulfill those roles in the future to serve the state, the nation, and the world?
Join Stephen Gavazzi, co-author of Land-Grant Universities for the Future, to consider these and other challenging questions. Dr. Gavazzi, professor of human development and family science at The Ohio State University, will present a keynote address and lead a series of dialogues focused on some of the key themes in his book.
Faculty, staff, and students statewide are encouraged to participate. The symposium will frame the discussion for the development of a new system-focused strategic plan that will incorporate the Drive to 25, align with other institutional planning efforts, and serve as the basis for individual campus, college, and unit plans.
