As called for by its mission, the organization identifies its constituencies and serves them in ways both value.

Both our internal and external constituencies are served by programs and activities affiliated with every division on our campus. The most obvious constituents are our undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, the university has a strong history of engagement and service with external constituencies starting with the immediate community and branching out to regional, national, and international affiliations. Earlier sections describe our responsiveness and service to our internal constituencies; therefore, the main focus in this chapter will be upon our work with external constituencies. However, certain curricular and co-curricular activities, such as service learning, are an integral part of the university mission and constitute significant examples of engagement and service. Thus, segments of this chapter discuss the interaction of internal structures for planning, analysis, and reporting and their relationship to our constituencies. The university conducts a wealth of service-related programs, projects, and activities. Of the over one hundred examples, thirty are highlighted in this chapter.
