Registration is now open for Midwest Campus Compact Conference
Registration is now open for the 2017 Midwest Campus Compact Conference – Doing Democracy: Asset-Based Engagement and Culture Change. Join us June 6-7, 2017 at Loyola University in Chicago, IL.
Our nation is wrestling with racial divides, political polarization, and economic inequality that endanger our democracy. As we advance higher education’s public purposes–and gather in Chicago, home of the Asset-Based Community Development Institute–a focus on our campuses’ and communities’ strengths is critical.
The schedule includes a keynote by Dr. Byron White of StrivePartnership on the value of using an asset-based approach for higher education community engagement. Six Deep Dive sessions will cover a range of topics including working with international students, asset-based development, pathways, and collective impact. Other sessions will feature presenters from across the Midwest on topics ranging from partnerships to assessment and much more.
Whether you are new to civic and community engagement, curious about learning the basics of campus-community partnerships, or a seasoned professional seeking innovative approaches and discussion of important issues, this conference will provide opportunities to learn, explore, connect, and prepare for bold, thoughtful action.
Who should attend?
Faculty engaged or interested in community-based learning, research, or other collaborative efforts; staff and administrators in student affairs, academic affairs, and other areas (e.g., diversity, equity, and inclusion, institutional research and assessment); student leaders; and community partners.
