Spring 2018 Network Retreat
February 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join community engagement professionals, faculty, other staff, leaders and students for a network retreat focusing on important topics in the field.
For this retreat, we will share community engagement learning outcomes and assessment and evaluation tools. Attendees will be asked to submit their examples in advance for a tool-sharing workshop.
Following lunch with our full-time national service members from across the state, we’ll open up a discussion on how we can best serve and engage today’s student. Student demographics and demands are changing along with a backdrop of changing culture and political climate. These issues impact how we do our work and our ability to effectively help students learn and grow in community. We’ll discuss trends on campus and explore ways to adapt.
This retreat will also serve as a in-service training event for full-time AmeriCorps and VISTA members. Members of the Iowa College AmeriCorps Program or Iowa Campus Compact VISTA Community Corps can register at no cost with the discount code “AmeriCorps” and are eligible for travel assistance.
