Topics, dates, and facilitators have been announced for next year’s nine issue-focused Communities of Practice. Focus areas include faculty development, digital engagement, reflection, place-based partnerships, social innovation, food access, voter engagement, and community-engaged research and departments. CoPs last the academic year and are open to faculty, staff, administrators, and community partners affiliated with the University of Minnesota and Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, 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 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 facilitators from the field, formed around a specific issue in higher education community and civic engagement. Applications are due September 30, 2020.
