3.25 NJUTThe New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) has announced that Timothy V. Franklin, vice president and chief operating officer of the New Jersey Innovation Institute has been named to the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities Planning Committee on the New Engagement.

The committee is charged with envisioning a new, broadly inclusive definition for university engagement, and is also charged with making recommendations for university actions to realize this vision across multiple university colleges and departments.

The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) is a research, policy, and advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening and advancing the work of public universities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. With a membership of 235 public research universities, land-grant institutions, state university systems and affiliated organizations, APLU universities conduct more than $41 billion in university-based research.

“I’m honored to become a member of the APLU New Engagement Committee that leads efforts to strengthen university public service, outreach, and engagement that result in beneficial impact on community and university goals. This APLU effort provides a forum for public higher education leaders to work collaboratively and define approaches to impact our communities in ways that better meet the challenges and opportunities facing public universities,” said Dr. Franklin.
