The Talloires Network

May 3, 2015

The Talloires Network is an international association of institutions committed to strengthening the civic roles and social responsibilities of higher education that was convened by Tufts University President Lawrence Bacow in 2005.  Its first conference gave rise to the Talloires Declaration on the Civic Roles and Social Responsibilities of Higher Education.  All signatories of the Declaration have committed their institutions to educating for social responsibility and civic engagement, and to strengthening the application of university resources to the needs of local and global communities. The Declaration “establishes the Talloires Network, with an open electronic space for the exchange of ideas and understandings and for fostering collective action.” The Network seeks to implement the recommendations of the Declaration and build a global movement of engaged universities.  The website includes numerous published sources on various aspects of engaged scholarship.
