Presidential Engagement Fellows

Overview

The University of Missouri System is proud of the excellent teaching, breakthrough research and creative achievements, and meaningful engagement by our faculty. The Presidential Engagement Fellows Program was established to share these accomplishments with the citizens of Missouri in their communities to make personal connections and deliver on our important mission to disseminate and apply knowledge for the benefit all Missourians.

To participate in this program, faculty members are nominated at the campus level based on their demonstrated excellence as well as their ability to communicate their research to the public. Fellows will participate in a five-hour training and orientation session and represent the UM System at 3-5 speaking events a year.

The program is administered through MU's Office of the Vice Chancellor for Extension & Engagement.

Request a Presidential Engagement Fellow

As you complete your request for a speaker from the Presidential Engagement Fellows program, please keep the following in mind:

  • There is no cost to your group to host a speaker; their participation is covered as part of the Presidential Engagement Fellows program.
  • Speakers are booked on a first come, first served basis, with preference to groups of 25 or more. We encourage groups to come together in requesting speakers.
  • Speakers are scheduled according to availability; some speakers may be unavailable for an event.
  • Plan ahead to allow sufficient time for the University to make necessary travel arrangements with the speaker and prepare travel logistics.
  • Consider your audience and provide the necessary information with your request so speakers can tailor their remarks to fit your group.
  • Consult the speaker information above for supporting materials.

If you have questions about requesting a speaker, please reach out to Tracy Feller (FellerT@missouri.edu) before completing your speaker request form.
