Connecting TCU to the greater community is an important part of our mission and can be accomplished in multiple ways—artistic showcases, athletics, conferences, and more. Opportunities also exist through TCU’s Office of Extended Education—leading non-credit evening courses, being a featured Faculty Favorite Lecture speaker, volunteering to teach a TCU Silver Frogs program, and more. The paid and volunteer opportunities administered through the Office of Extended Education serve to further develop professional and enrichment connections between our campus and the community.
Many opportunities are available to TCU faculty and departments to engage with the local community through partnership with the Office of Extended Education. Departments wanting to do outreach and generate departmental revenue can do so through a variety of programs and activities, such as conferences and institutes. Extended Education takes care of the “back office” administrative details, leaving the program development and delivery to the experts—the faculty.
In this workshop, participants will:
Explore the value of community outreach and engagement
Identify activities and programs available to individual faculty and departments
Discuss revenue-generating models for departments
Review administrative details and timelines for implementation
Each year, thousands of community members take part in Extended Education opportunities here at TCU. You can be a part of that outreach!
