MORGANTOWN, WV – The Center for Democracy and Citizenship Education, an extension of West Virginia University focused on civic education and outreach, will present "Mission of the Land Grant University in the 21st Century" to the public at 5 p.m. Aug. 25 at the Erickson Alumni Center. The discussion is part of a day-long program hosted by the Center, "Institutional Citizenship," which will take place from 1-6 p.m.

The "Mission of the Land Grant University in the 21st Century" focuses on how collaborative efforts can yield results that greatly benefit not only the university, but its greater community. The goal of the discussion is to steer WVU in the direction consistent with its 2020 Strategic Plan for the Future, which seeks to establish the university as a prominent research entity active in global outreach by 2020. The session will include thoughts from guest speaker A.G. Rud, a distinguished professor at Washington State University, also a land-grant institution.
