"By engagement, we refer to a redesign of basic university functions so the institution becomes even more productively involved with communities, however community is defined.  Going well beyond most conceptions of public service, which emphasize a one-way transfer of university expertise to the public, the engagement ideal envisions new public/university partnerships defined by mutual respect for what each partner brings to the table." -Kellogg Commission, 2000, p.22
