Save the date! Service Learning for the Public Good

National Community College Conference on Service Learning and Community Engagement

May 18-19, 2018 at Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood, Colorado

The theme of the conference, Service Learning for the Public Good, speaks to the importance of the work that community colleges do every day: reaching and teaching diverse populations; offering opportunities to convene around important local, regional, and national issues; helping students succeed academically and in their chosen careers; and working hand-in-hand with local organizations to build reciprocity in community partnerships. Conference participants will discover and share the value of service learning in giving students real-world experience that helps to build their academic skills and commitment to their local communities.

Red Rocks Community College is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for its 2018 National Community College Conference on Service Learning and Community Engagement. This dynamic and relevant conference is an opportunity for community college faculty, staff, and administrators to network and learn about promising practices in the field of service learning and community engagement. The Red Rocks Community College conference planning committee seeks experienced community college faculty, practitioners, and their community partners as conference presenters, to share the value of service learning in giving students real-world experience that helps to build their academic skills and commitment to their local communities.

Theme and Speakers
The theme of the conference, Service Learning for the Public Good, speaks to the importance of the work that community colleges do every day: reaching and teaching diverse populations; offering opportunities to convene around important local, regional, and national issues; helping students succeed academically and in their chosen careers; and working hand-in-hand with local organizations to build reciprocity in community partnerships. At a time of change in our national and international spheres, we invite you to join our conversation by submitting proposals that address the conference theme. How can we ensure service learning benefits the public good, whether in curricular or cocurricular settings?

The Red Rocks Conference planning committee is excited to announce that the opening speaker will be Paul Hernandez, PhD, chief diversity officer at Lansing Community College in Michigan and author of The Pedagogy of Real Talk. Dr. Hernandez is a nationally recognized speaker and leader in college access and success, community outreach, and pedagogy for educators working with underserved and underprepared students and those at risk of dropping out of school.
