More and more libraries' strategic plans have begun to include Outreach and Community Engagement to engage and learn more about our users and our community to meet their evolving needs.  We have become faced with supporting our institutions' Community Engagement Mission and initiatives, by identifying priorities, seeking programs to undertake and plan, objectives to achieve within in the communities we serve.  And, we are expected to do this without additional funding, or staffing.In this session, participants will walk away with: 

1) Operational definitions for Community Engagement, Outreach, Diversity, and Recruitment; 
2) Planning Tools; 
3) Examples of events and How to use Community Engagement/Outreach to earn Tenure.
