Service Learning for the Public Good
Friday, May 18 – Saturday, May 19, 2018
Red Rocks Community College
13300 W. 6th Ave, Lakewood, CO 80228

This dynamic and relevant event 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 National Community College Conference on Service Learning and Community Engagement at Red Rocks Community College will feature nationally known speakers, local community-based panels, interactive workshops, roundtable sessions, and extensive networking time.

Our conference theme, 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. How can we ensure service learning benefits the public good, whether in curricular or co-curricular settings? 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.
