- Black Friday
- Small Business Saturday
- Cyber Monday
- Giving Tuesday
If you are like me, your email inbox was full all weekend long—likely not with greetings from friends and family, but with promotions about all the (pre and) post-Thanksgiving shopping opportunities. And I have no doubt that today you will be getting many emails from non-profit organizations that are important to you, reminding you that it is Giving Tuesday.
The Service Engagement Summit, March 27-28, 2014, will explore what service engagement is on our 21st century campuses. In addition to our featured speakers, we are seeking a limited number of presentations for each day of the summit.
College campuses are changing. College students are changing. No longer are they limited to the bricks and mortar buildings with young adult students solely focused on being a student. The college student population has diversified over the last few decades bringing students of varied ages, experiences, and expectations to our doors. And sometimes, they are coming to virtual doors.
So what does community engagement look like on the 21st Century campus?
Join Thomas Ehlrich, Ernestine Fu, Derrick Feldmann, and Craig DeForest at the 2014 Service Engagement Summit to help you explore that question.
Earlier this year, I wrote about the experience of sitting at the Indiana Campus Compact 20th Anniversary celebration and listening to some of our founding members share why Indiana Campus Compact was important to higher education 20 years ago and why it continues to be important to higher education today. As you may recall, what struck me in that moment was that each of us is a tiny part of a history and of a story that is so much larger than anyone of us.
