Posted by North Carolina Campus Compact on October 8, 2019

NC Campus Compact’s Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement (PACE) Conference
February 12, 2020, Elon University, Elon, NC
Deadline: November 1, 2019

The annual PACE conference, now in its 23rd year, is for faculty, staff, researchers, community partners, and graduate students who want to gain skills, knowledge and best practice models for a spectrum of community and civic engagement pedagogies and practices.  We are seeking workshop proposals in the following tracks: Capacity-building, Pedagogy, and Research and theory.

As 2020 is a presidential election year, we are organizing a special track “Promoting Civic Discussions and Civil Discourse.” We seek examples of courses that help students deliberate about solutions to challenging social issues, think critically about divisive topics, examine their own biases, and promote greater understanding across differences.

We also offer a mini-session format which includes two-20 minute presentations on the same topic, in a one-hour workshop block. We are seeking proposals on any of the following topics.

  1. Food Insecurity
  2. Democratic & Political Engagement
  3. Creating and Sustaining an Engaged Campus
  4. Equity and Inclusion
  5. Partnerships to Improve K-12 Education
  6. Addressing Health Disparities
  7. Empowering Students as Colleagues
  8. Community College Engagement

The 2020 keynote speaker is Dr. Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, the executive director of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge at Civic Nation. Prior to joining the Challenge, Dr. Domagal-Goldman served as the national manager of the American Democracy Project, a national civic learning and democratic engagement network of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU).

Review the Call for Proposals here.

Registration opens on October 16.  The fee is $125 per person (for members of Campus Compact) and $150 for non-members.
