Consulting, Training and Facilitation

Iowa Campus Compact staff has expertise in community engagement, student development, course development, strategic planning and facilitation that can help move your work forward on campus. As a part of member, campuses can take advantage of the opportunity for this support at no cost for most requests. Non-members and other organizations can also request support.

A few examples of what we can do:

  • Present on-campus workshops for faculty on different approaches to community-engaged learning and research, publishing opportunities, and advanced engagement work reaching across disciplines, units, or terms;
  • Facilitate strategic planning with campus leaders eager to integrate and deepen engaged teaching, research, and co-curricular programs;
  • Introduce a variety of stakeholders (community members, students, staff, faculty) to asset-based approaches to collaborative public work;
  • Lead training for students and national service members on a variety of topics related to skills and vocation;
  • Speak at conferences about the case for civic engagement and effective strategies;
  • Serve on search committees for key civic engagement positions; and
  • Participate in conversations about institutionalization efforts.
