Jeff.2The 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.
