Workshop: The Community College Commitment to Civic Engagement
April 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$25
Join Verdis Robinson, Campus Compact’s director of community college engagement, for an community college workshop at Kirkwood Community College. Through a series of panels, small group dialogues, and larger conversations, we will explore the unique challenges and opportunities of community colleges and their critical role in preparing students to be informed, active, and mobilized citizens in their communities, states, and the world. We will also examine aligning civic engagement with community college priorities.
This workshop is hosted by Campus Compact’s Community College Commitment, a new national network of community colleges dedicated to the advancement of civic learning and engagement at community colleges. This event is open to community college administrators, faculty, and staff from across Iowa and beyond. Attendees do not need to be current Campus Compact members for this special event.
