Join us for the 2017 Engaged Campus Awards

Awards will be presented in several categories. Learn more and make nominations!

Following the awards, keynote speaker Dr. Timothy K. Eatman (@tkeatman) will provide a framework for discussion, inspiration and action about the importance of the mission of higher education. He will emphasize the power of publicly engaged scholarship and the urgency of transformation among institutions of higher education in the 21st century, including the need for full participation, dialogue and healing.

Member campuses are invited to sponsor tables. Learn more and RSVP by April 21, 2017.

1:00 to 3:00 pm – Summit on the Mission of Higher Education

Does the civic mission of higher education matter? How can we better tell the story of this mission and its importance? Attendees will learn about a new campaign to tell these stories and “give voice” to the civic mission. They will also craft their own stories and share them to create a larger narrative.

About the Awards
