The definition of "grassroots" from Dictionary.com is:

  1. the common or ordinary people, especially as contrasted with the leadership or elite of a political party, social organization, etc.; the rank and file.
  1. of, relating to, or involving the common people, especially as contrasted with or separable from an elite:

In this particular context, "grassroots" likely refers to members of the wider community or, in other words, the common folk who are not leaders. So, the president is calling upon the faculty, students, and alumni to engage both leaders and non-leaders.
