Academic Outreach

Welcome to Academic Outreach

The Academic Outreach program is a public service of Chowan University. The purpose of the program is to facilitate interactions between the faculty of Chowan University and the faculty and students of the public and private schools.

The strength of an institution is measured in a variety of ways. One of the best indicators of the quality of a university is its faculty. For more than 170 years, Chowan University has been fortunate to attract first-rate professors. Our faculty members’ enthusiasm for their academic disciplines is reinforced with their desire to share their expertise with students both on and off our campus. Our faculty will bring the classroom to you, or we invite you to our campus.

Through Academic Outreach, you gain access to more than 250 topics that Chowan faculty have agreed to present, as a courtesy, to schools and community organizations. Whether you are interested in learning about “College Success Tips” or “Ecosystem Ecology,” there is sure to be a topic that meets your school’s needs. We are confident that you will find the presentations interesting and of value to students, teachers, and administrators.

The topics offered by our faculty are specific to disciplines or departments of the university. However, if there are topics not listed that you wish to have offered, contact us and we will be glad to assist you in developing the program and providing a speaker.

We look forward to hosting you and your students on our campus, or we would be delighted to bring the classroom to you.
