Call for Proposals: Upper Midwest Civic Engagement Summit

Posted by on January 08, 2012

Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin Campus Compacts invite you to present and join us for the first annual Upper Midwest Civic Engagement Summit, June 5-6, 2012 at Macalester College in St. Paul Minnesota. The Summit will provide opportunities for faculty, professional staff, student and community leaders interested in higher education civic engagement activities to network and learn from one another while engaging in skill-building sessions as well as discussing challenging issues facing our communities and campuses.

This work is critical to democracy.  In an era of deeply polarized and uncivil public discourse, high-quality community work and learning prepares students to listen and speak respectfully across differences.  Rather than resigning ourselves to the existence of major social problems, campuses can build partnerships that support student success and address specific community priorities.  Investing in assessment also allows us to communicate the value of these collaborative efforts and continue to improve them.

Please consider submitting a proposal to present a session or poster by February 24, 2012 using this RFP form:

Registration will open in March. More information can be found and will be added to this page:
