2015 marks the 17th year of NC Campus Compact’s annual conference for community engagement faculty, staff, researchers, community partners, and graduate students who want to gain skills, knowledge and best practice models for a spectrum of civic engagement pedagogies and activities.
The 2015 keynote speaker is Dr. Rick Battistoni, Professor of Political Science and Public and Community Service Studies, and Director of the Feinstein Institute for Public Service, at Providence College. For over 25 years, Rick has been a leader in the field of community-based learning, especially as it relates to questions of democratic civic education and engagement, highlighted in 2013 by his receipt of the Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award. He will discuss “Beyond Service and Service-Learning.”
The 2015 conference includes 32 workshops in the following tracks:
- Research & Theory
- Capacity-building, institutionalization
- Community-Campus Partnerships for Health*
*This year NC Campus Compact is excited to partner with Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) to host a track of four workshops related to their mission to promote health equity and social justice through partnerships between communities and academic institutions.
