    According to Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School, disruptive innovation changes the path of improvement in organizations by providing new value to customers through affordability, accessibility, capacity, responsiveness, simplicity, or customization of a process or product. Is university-community engagement a disruptive innovation that changes higher education and communities? This panel will explore engagement as a disruptive innovation that can change campus culture, the promotion and tenure process, teaching, research, and university operations/administration. Join us in exploring the concept of engagement as a form of disruptive innovation to enhance the effectiveness of universities and the benefits for the communities they engage with.
