2016 Roads Scholars Tour Explores Northwest Ohio

The Roads Scholars Tour, a two-day, traveling seminar that included President Drake and Provost McPheron, took more than 50 faculty, staff and community partners to northwest Ohio on July 14-15 to tour sites where the university has key partnerships. Participants viewed first-hand the reach and impact that engaged teaching and research collaborations have on communities and residents across the state.

Engagement is:

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.
