Civic engagement is vital to the education of all students and a core commitment of higher education. Living out that commitment looks different on a community college campus where student populations and faculty workloads often differ from other institutions.  Join Verdis Robinson, Campus Compact’s director of community college engagement, for a community college workshop. Through a series of 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 other community college priorities. This workshop is hosted by Campus Compact’s Community Colleges for Democracy, a national network dedicated to the advancement of civic learning and engagement at community colleges.

Webinar: Integrating Civic Outcomes Across a Major or Program

April 4, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Zoom web conference
Free
Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major. A curriculum map is a tool to assure the content of a program of study or major is being presented and assessed, all content is linked to learning goals (e.g. institutional, accreditor), and that content is sufficient to reach learning and developmental goals. A curriculum mapping exercise can show gaps in learning, overlaps in content, and indicate where weaknesses or opportunities can and should be addressed.

Zoom web conference
Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

Placed-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education Widely known through the work of the Harlem Children’s Zone and the federal government’s Promise and Choice Neighborhood programs, geographically specific community engagement initiatives have the potential to positively address the challenges of inequity and injustice within our communities.

Webinar: Engaging Immigrant Communities

April 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Zoom web conference
Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

Immigration is a national hot topic. During this webinar members of the Cal State East Bay community will share the responsive programs they created to engage the immigrant community and develop positive relationships across difference. In 2014, when a surge in the number of unaccompanied minors immigrating to the United States from Central America created a need for more support of immigrant youth, CSUEB created an Immigrant Community Engagement course. During this course our students probe the dynamics of immigrant experiences and serve at immigrant supporting agencies. In 2016-17 after a surge in federal immigration enforcement and arrests, 200+ campus employees and students have been trained to serve as allies to support the unique needs of undocumented students on campus. Our campus also hosted a CSU systemwide Undocumented Student Resource Summit. In 2017-18 our campus and community common read is In the Country We Love: My Family Divided by Diane Guerrero, which tells the story of the author’s life after her parents…

Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

Are you looking for a great way to document the impacts of your community engagement efforts? Ripple Effects Mapping (REM) uses elements of Appreciative Inquiry, mind mapping, and qualitative data analysis to engage program participants to reflect upon and visually map the intended and unintended changes produced by a complex program or collaboration. The result is not only a powerful technique to document impacts, but a way to engage and re-energize participants and stakeholders to keep moving toward collective goals. Presenter Scott Chazdon, an evaluator with the University of Minnesota's Extension Center for Community Vitality, will provide an in-depth description of REM’s use to document the impacts of collaborative community initiatives, such as community gardening efforts in the Frogtown and Rondo neighborhoods near downtown Saint Paul, and community engaged scholarship programming at the University of Minnesota.
