Building a Global Community through Collaborative Engaged Scholarship

Seattle, WA
April 16-18, 2009

It has never been more important to bring students, faculty, service-learning and civic engagement practitioners, and community members together to address the critical issues we are facing locally and globally. Given the current global economic climate, and the enormous changes in our world, it is imperative that we use engagement to support and enable our fellow citizens to live, work, access higher education, and improve the health of our society. The exceptional work being done in service-learning and civic engagement, and the partnerships that have been built between campuses and communities, must be nurtured and sustained in order to continue affecting society for the better.

The 12th Annual Continuums of Service Conference aims to highlight ways in which engagement can address critical community issues we are facing locally, nationally, and globally. By sharing insights and experiences, and by discussing key questions, participants will build knowledge and form new alliances in order to strengthen our campuses, our communities, and our shared world.
