    8. 8. The dramatic growth of civic engagement in higher education…promises benefits that are vitally important to societies around the world, touniversities in those societies, and to their students.By capitalizing on the human power and knowledge of their students andprofessors, engaged universities can directly tackle community problems.Their public service work is an important part of how professors teach and doresearch, an essential way that students learn. (Tufts) CSU Extension provides a critical connection to communities across Colorado. “Outreach begins with an answer, engagement ends with one.” Roger Rennekamp, Oregon State
