PACE Webinar: Increasing College Access and Success Through Civic Engagement

This webinar will feature Campus Compact’s national effort to utilize civic engagement to promote access to and success in higher education.  In the first of its kind Presidential Leadership Summit convened by Campus Compact (CC) in October 2010, nearly 100 college and university presidents and state CC directors gathered to focus on a single, compelling thesis: that college students who participate in civic engagement and service learning as part of their curriculum earn higher grade point averages and have a better chance of staying in college and earning degrees. Hear about what has happened since the Summit and what lessons have been learned that can inform the work of other higher education institutions. Once you register for the webinar, you’ll be redirected to a link to A Promising Connection, the white paper published by CC for the Summit. Register for the webinar at:
