The Michigan State University Office of Outreach and Engagement adheres to the definition of engagement as scholarship that cuts across teaching, research, and service and includes the generation, transmission, application, and preservation of knowledge for the benefit of those beyond the university.  MSU University Outreach and Engagement advocates relationships between the University and the public that are reciprocal and mutually beneficial.  The MSU University Outreach and Engagement model relies on the co-creation and application of knowledge, a relationship that increases both partners' capacity to address issues. The MSU University Outreach and Engagement team includes Drs. Jessica Barnes and Hi Fitzgerald.  They have partnered with tribal communities in Michigan for over 11 years on research regarding tribally based early childhood education. 

The Michigan State University Tribal Early Childhood Research Center partners include Drs. Jessica Barnes and Hi Fitzgerald – both of whom have been TRC partners since its inception as the American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start Research Center in 2005.
