Engaged Learning Economies: Perspectives from Presidents and Chancellors
James P. Dworkin, Chancellor, Purdue University North Central; William J. Lowe, Chancellor, Indiana University Northwest; and Jerrilee Mosier, Chancellor, Ivy Tech Community College - Northeast
Moderated by Maureen Curley, President, Campus Compact
In October 2012, Campus Compact convened higher education leaders from campuses across the country to explore the possibilities for engaged learning economies—a new way of thinking about the integration of higher education and community and economic development initiatives. By integrating these efforts in strategic and holistic ways, institutions and communities can create partnerships and programs that have the ability to foster positive civic and economic change. Building upon the Engaged Learning Economies white paper (Campus Compact, 2012) and discussions from last fall’s convening, leaders from Indiana’s higher education institutions will share their perspectives on this idea and help participants align these areas on their campuses and with their communities.
