University of Chicago President Robert Zimmer asserted Monday that “a whole re-conceptualizing of our civic engagement” has taken place at the prestigious private school on the South Side during his tenure.

Speaking at a City Club of Chicago event, Zimmer said, “Eight years ago we began to look at civic engagement in a new light” and focused on the question of what is the ideal relationship between “a great research university with the city around it.” Zimmer became university president eight years ago, in 2006.
