Service Engagement Summit
March 26-27, 2015
Featuring an opening keynote address by Conor Grennan, Social Entrepreneur, Dean of MBA students at NYU Stern, and New York Times bestselling author of Little Princes. Conor founded Next Generation Nepal, a non-governmental organization (NGO) that has rescued and reconnected with their families approximately 500 trafficked children in post-war Nepal. "Conor is a bridge builder who successfully discovers unforeseen opportunities to make a meaningful difference where business, society, culture and people intersect." - Peter Henry, Dean of NYU Stern
The opening keynote address on day two will be by Jeff Snell, founder of the Midwest Social Innovation LLC and co-founder of the Midwest Consortium for Social Innovation at Marquette University Snell said that he has seen over and over again that once students are introduced to the concept of social entrepreneurship and shown real-world examples, their capacity to innovate proves endless. "The students run with these ideas," he said. "As an administrator or faculty member, you have to know when to get out of the way. Help them unleash their passion, and then let them go. It's fun to watch."
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.
