2019 Civic Action Planning and Implementation Institute

January 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event is designed for campus teams to come together and work on creating and implementing strong Civic Action Plans.

In 2016, all of Iowa Campus Compact’s member presidents signed the National Campus Compact Civic Action Statement. The statement includes a commitment to develop and share a Civic Action Plan within a year. IACC is working to support our member campuses in developing and implementing these plans.

Teams can include individuals from across campus and beyond including faculty, staff, administrators, students and community partners. We also recommend engaging leaders from across campus including faculty, staff from a variety of areas (diversity, ministry, teaching and learning, research, etc), student leaders, and community partners. It is strongly encouraged that at least one senior administrator attends with the team and diversity and equity staff are particularly encouraged to attend.

Teams will have the opportunity to consider new strategies for civic action including applying an equity lens and engaging key campus leaders and will have the opportunity to work together and receive expert consultation on their planning and/or implementation.

Agenda Items:

  • Building Blocks for Equitable Civic Action, with National Campus Compact Vice President Marisol Morales
  • Panel Discussion: How can leaders and administrators catalyze civic action
  • Cross-Campus Break-Out Groups
  • Action Planning/Implementation Team Work Time and Consultation

Registration is now available and closes on January 9, 2019.
