ICC Reads Discussion Group

ICC Reads is an online book discussion group in which individuals from Indiana Campus Compact partner institutions talk about selected texts related to service-learning and community engagement. Selected readings will focus on topics that can relate to a broad audience and will encourage participants to explore new and innovative ways of examining the field.

Discussions will take place on a bi-monthly basis and be led by Laura Weaver, director of programs and member development. Depending on interest, participants will be encouraged to co-facilitate discussion sessions.

Engaging Higher Education: Purpose, Platforms, and Programs for Community Engagement
