North Carolina Campus Compact’s 2019 PACE (Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement) Conference will be February 13, 2019 at UNC Greensboro. Proposals are sought for presentations that will inform or advance the scholarship and practice of civic and community engagement through research findings, innovative program design and partnership models, effective curriculum or co-curricular models, institutional capacity building and institutionalization, and successful community engagement practices. Proposals are due November 1.

Faculty, staff, students, and community partners are welcome to submit proposals and to attend. The 2019 PACE keynote speaker is John B. King Jr., president and CEO of The Education Trust, a national nonprofit organization that seeks to identify and close opportunity and achievement gaps, from preschool through college. King served in President Barack Obama’s cabinet as the 10th U.S. Secretary of Education. Learn more.
