Resources

Spring 2011 Connector

Congratulations! You’ve made it through another semester!  As everyone is finishing finals and leaving campus, I am sure that orientation and the first days of school seem much further behind us than just three months. I know that a lot has happened in the Indiana Campus Compact (ICC) world since then, so I’m sure the same has to be true on your campus.

The tradition of the ICC Connector each semester is to highlight and preview some things for the upcoming semester, but before we jump into looking ahead, I want to take a few minutes and make sure you haven’t missed some great resources from this past semester.

In addition, in October, national Campus Compact released its most recent publication, A Promising Connection: Increasing College Access and Success through Civic Engagement as part of the Presidents Leadership Summit—a two day event at Georgetown University for presidents to learn more about the intersection between our work in civic engagement and college access and success conversations.  We have sent copies of this report to all of our presidents and chancellors and I encourage you to review this document and the additional resources that are available on the webpage and use this as a catalyst for new conversations on your campus.

So, as I said, the fall was busy…but that didn’t preclude us from planning even more opportunities for professional development and networking for the spring. Our spring Networking Council meeting will take place on Friday, April 1, 2011 as part of the second day of the Service Engagement Summit (March 31-April 1, 2011). On the first day of the Service Engagement Summit, we will highlight best practices and research related to service engagement and we encourage you and your colleagues to submit a proposal to share your work.  You may want to put a bug in the ear of your department chairs, deans, and provost because we also will have targeted sessions for them on the first day of the Service Engagement Summit.

In addition to this updated and expanded professional development opportunity, we are excited to host the return of some other programs that have been developed in the past couple of years.

As always, you can find an updated list of important dates on our 2011 calendar. All of our grant and award deadlines are listed on here as well as information about upcoming ICC events. We encourage you to post relevant events that you would like to make others aware of on our web calendar as well. And, in addition to posting events, please share your stories and your pictures with us through the website. This is a great way to let others know about the great work your campus is involved in.

Wishing you restful break as 2010 comes to an end and a peaceful new year!

With gratitude,

Maggie Stevens
