We can act together to change the conversation.
As so much of the conversation about higher education focuses on private gains, our members are interested in increasing the public’s recognition of the civic mission. This includes the idea that developing into a responsible citizen is an important reason to attend college and that community engagement is critical to the college experience.
Working together to speak with one voice will elevate our cause and many individual stories together into one larger and more powerful story. We are providing support for college and university communications staff, faculty, students, others staff, and leaders interested in speaking publicly, sharing stories, reframing community engagement experiences, and helping to elevate a common message.
