Mission of OFE
The Office of Faculty Engagement provides campus-wide support, advocacy, and leadership in the promotion of outreach and community engagement at Auburn University. Outreach is an important expression and application of faculty disciplinary expertise, transformative collaboration, and scholarship. Engagement promotes university and community collaboration characterized by qualities of reciprocity and mutuality. By engaging in outreach, faculty improve life quality in Alabama and beyond. Additionally, they also gain valuable experience and insights that can inform instruction, research and service.
