2019-2020 Communities of Practice

June 6, 2019
Apply now to participate in one of next year’s six issue-focused Communities of Practice. Focus areas include high impact student learning, critical consciousness, change-oriented research, participatory scholarship, community engagement professional competencies, and institutional linkages between community engagement and diversity, equity, and inclusion. CoPs are open to faculty, staff, administrators, and community partners affiliated with the University of Minnesota and Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin Campus Compact member campuses.
CoPs are designed to leverage connections and open conversations that might not otherwise occur. Those interested in participating will complete a very short application, to be reviewed by the Campus Compact staff. CoPs will meet six times throughout the academic year online and will include 8-12 participants each, led by two co-chairs from the field, formed around a specific issue in higher education community and civic engagement.
