Call for Proposals: Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement Conference

Posted by North Carolina Campus Compact on September 14, 2015

North Carolina Campus Compact’s annual PACE Conference will be held February 10, 2016 at High Point University. Faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to attend this day-long event which seeks to advance the research and practice of community engagement by sharing research findings, innovative program design and partnership models, effective curricular and co-curricular models, and best practices.

The 2015-2016 academic year is a significant reflective moment for service-learning and community engagement. Thirty years ago national Campus Compact was formed. Twenty years ago, in 1995, Edward Zlotkowski published the article “Does Service-Learning Have a Future?” — strongly influencing the subsequent development of service-learning as an academic endeavor. To mark that anniversary, he is co-facilitating an international initiative exploring the future directions of the movement. Dr. Zlotkowski, along with Drs. Patti Clayton and Sarah Stanlick, will lead PACE participants in a plenary conversation that considers ideas and questions emerging from across the community engagement world at this — possibly threshold — moment in our shared work.

The CALL FOR PROPOSALS is now available online. Deadline to submit is November 9, 2015.
