Communities of Practice

Iowa Campus Compact is offering a set of six issue-focused Communities of Practice (CoPs) in 2017-18. These CoPs are open to faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community partners affiliated with the University of Minnesota and Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin Campus Compact member campuses.

CoPs will launch with an in-person gathering on October 13, 2017 in a Minneapolis/St. Paul location TBD, and then meet four times* via video conference call. (*The Equity and Empowerment Lens CoP will have seven calls.) Each CoP is co-facilitated by leaders from our network, and there is no charge to participate.
