Call for Proposals: Dispatches from the Midwest: Community, Collaboration, and Critical Perspectives – Feb 8

Posted by Midwest Campus Compact on January 15, 2019

The Campus Compacts of the Great Plains, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin invite proposals for the 2019 Midwest Campus Compact Conference, which will take place May 29 – 31, 2019, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Whether you are new to community-engaged learning and scholarship and curious about learning the basics of community-campus partnerships, or you are a seasoned engaged scholar or community engagement professional who is seeking innovative approaches and discussion of important issues, this conference will provide you with they opportunity to learn, explore, connect, leaving prepared for bold and thoughtful action.

Each session proposal should relate to the conference theme: Dispatches from the Midwest: Community, Collaboration, and Critical Perspectives.

We are focused on the ways in which our community-campus partnerships are able to address the concerns and impact the lives of those living in communities throughout the Midwest. Evidence of these partnerships is more than simply adding more community-engaged courses, research projects, and programs, but rather it involves a greater understanding of the identities that shape our work. Including fostering more inclusive and equitable spaces for collaboration, supporting multiple forms of changemaking, rewarding the production of multiple forms of scholarly products, and integrating a sense of civic agency and responsibility into the core of our institutional cultures.

Learn more and submit your proposal by February 8, 2019!
