Iowa Campus Compact is hosting a special workshop with Dr. Stephen Black on culture change and renewing the civic mission of higher education. The session will include discussion on the transformative potential of community-campus partnerships, creating opportunities for students to build capacity, and the importance of communicating and telling the story of this work. Participants will have the opportunity to explore creative ideas for moving the community engagement work forward on campus and generating support and creating opportunities for more students.
Dr. Black is the founder and leader of the Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility at The University of Alabama, where he has served as Director since 2005. In 2004, Mr. Black also founded Impact Alabama: A Student Service Initiative and currently serves as its President and Chairman of the Board. Housed at the UA Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility, Impact Alabama is the state’s first nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and implementing substantive service-learning projects in coordination with colleges and universities throughout Alabama. In October 2014, Impact Alabama became Impact America, which currently operates in Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and Florida.
The workshop will be followed by a networking reception from 5:00 to 6:30 pm to which all attendees are invited.
