5th Annual Service Engagement Summit
March 26-27, 2015
Indianapolis Marriott North
The Indiana Campus Compact Service Engagement Summit is our signature event and it brings our campuses together in celebration around the work they do in campus and community engagement. Our campuses have made a compact, a public agreement that they are dedicated to serving communities while preparing students as future leaders.
This year's theme is Supporting Students in Social Ventures: Preparing students for a life of career and service and in keeping with that theme, The Impact Venture Center will be partnering with us as a presenting sponsor to present the student track on day two of the Summit.
- Conor Grennan, Social Entrepreneur, Dean of MBA students at NYU Stern, and New York Times bestselling author of Little Princes.
- Jeff Snell, founder of the Midwest Social Innovation LLC and co-founder of the Midwest Consortium for Social Innovation at Marquette University.
Connecting Campuses with Communities is a capacity building program for faculty and staff that is co-sponsored by Indiana Campus Compact and the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning. In the past, over 250 engaged scholars from more than 100 institutions and five countries have attended this annual event to enhance their service-learning teaching and community-based research. The event will be held on the IUPUI campus May 11-15, 2015. Dowload flyer.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has selected 240 U.S. colleges and universities to receive its 2015 Community Engagement Classification. Of this number, 83 institutions are receiving the classification for the first time, while 157 are now re-classified, after being classified originally in 2006 or 2008. These 240 institutions join the 121 institutions that earned the classification during the 2010 selection process. The Foundation congratulates all 361 campuses on gaining this important designation.

Start your semester off with a service engagement plan and the tools you need to implement it. You'll find links to programs such as events and grants in the letter below from Indiana Campus Compact Interim Executive Director J.R. Jamison.
Dear Members and Friends:
The year 2015 is here! Can you believe it? According to the 1989 blockbuster Back to the Future II, we should be wearing self-lacing sneakers and riding around on hover boards. But we’re not. Unless a group of really amazing students, faculty, and a few tech partners release prototypes in the next 12 months. And I can’t promise any of that (or likely fund it, either, unless it’s a service engagement project). What I can promise, though, is an exciting spring semester full of adventures (no hover boards needed) on behalf of all of us—including you—who make up the Compact.
Sponsorship of Indiana Campus Compact's 5th Annual Service Engagement Summit is an opportunity for your organization to reach administrators, faculty, staff, and students from more than 35 colleges and universities and their community partners from across the country. Put your organization in the spotlight and show your support for advancing service engagement in higher education.

Conference Registration Scholarships of up to $1,000.00 are available to students, professional staff, and faculty members presenting at scholarly conferences. Presentations should relate to the Indiana Campus Compact's mission to support higher education's effort to develop students into well-informed, engaged citizens and to serve as a catalyst for campuses and communities to improve people's lives through service-learning and civic engagement initiatives. Preference will be given to proposals that are a direct result of an ICC sponsored event or grant funding.
Start the new year off with a bargain from Indiana Campus Compact Publications - Buy Charting the Course and get the THIN Book for free!
Not familiar with these volumes? Both of the books were written by Indiana Campus Compact Faculty Fellows and provide essential tools for faculty in service-learning. The THIN Book is for faculty new to service-learning and Charting the Course is for more experienced faculty, though both books are indispensable additions to any library.

Cooperate - Advancing your nonprofit organization's mission through college & community partnerships: A guide for nonprofit leaders
Presented by Indiana Campus Compact faculty fellows and edited by Dr. Nathan A. Schaumleffel, this how-to guide aims to assist nonprofit organizations in creating beneficial partnerships that will increase their resources—thus making it easier for them to implement their plans and achieve their mission and strategic objectives.
As a member benefit, Indiana Campus Compact provides professional development for faculty, staff, and students on your campus. Together, our staff has over 30 years of experience in the field of service engagement in higher education and we can work with you and others on your campus to deliver workshops and training designed for beginning practitioners to experienced professionals.
Campus Compact president Andrew Seligsohn announced that the annual membership survey is now open and will remain open until January 5, 2015.
Each member campus has designated a Community Service Director to be the staff liaison to Indiana Campus Compact. Those liaisons received the announcement from Dr. Seligsohn and will be the contact person for the survey on each campus. We will be following up with everyone who received a survey link. Although there is only one contact person per campus, multiple offices will need to provide data for the most accurate campus portrait.
