Civic Engagement: Bridging Gaps in Education, in Communities, and across the Globe

The 17th Annual Continuums of Service Conference will bring together civic engagement and service-learning administrators, faculty, students and community partners in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii.  The theme for the 2014 conference will focus on how civic engagement and service-learning bridge gaps in education, in communities, and across the globe. Together we will examine current issues and disparities in educational access and success; health; wealth; and environmental sustainability.

As a conference participant, you will have the opportunity to critically examine the manifold pressures of educating students to be global civic leaders and preparing them for a dynamic workforce, while serving the public good and creating healthy, sustainable communities. The challenges facing our communities are complex; it is imperative that we prepare students to be empathetic and skilled leaders, applying their education to solve these critical issues. Evidence-based research confirms that civic engagement and service-learning are effective strategies for strengthening higher education’s ability to achieve these vital goals.

Please join us in celebrating the “Spirit of Aloha” April 2-4, 2014 at the 17th Annual Continuums of Service Conference in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii!
