The Council, in association with URI’s outreach partners, will assist the Office of University Outreach with the following:

  • Promoting the visibility of an access to URI outreach efforts, both on campus and externally,

  • Fostering linkages and matching needs between URI outreach partners and targeted audiences and stakeholders, 

  • Addressing relevant outreach information, funding, compensation, and acknowledgement issues,

  • Promoting undergraduate and graduate learning experiences in conjunction with outreach efforts.
