Ready…Set…Go! That is how I feel I am jumping into 2012, how about you? I used to feel that there was a transition point upon returning to campus and “jumping into” the spring semester…but not anymore. We count down to midnight on December 31st…and then we jump into the New Year full speed ahead!
To help you navigate your way through the upcoming programs, grant opportunities and awards that Indiana Campus Compact will be offering over the next six months, I invite you to spend a little time moving through the ICC Connector, make note of important dates and share information with your colleagues.
The next several months are full of events you have come to expect each year along with some new events. The events that we offer each spring include:
- Service Engagement Summit 2.0
- State-wide Alternative Break
- Connecting Campuses with Communities: Service Learning Institute and Research Academy
- Community Service Directors Institute
Three new events that you should be aware of are our Student Leadership Webinars, the Embedding Service Engagement into your Institutional Culture Workshops and a Faculty/Staff Writing Retreat.
Throughout the spring, Indiana Campus Compact will offer a series of Student Leadership Webinars. The primary audience for these webinars is students; however, we feel that since we all work with students on a regular basis, that faculty and staff members might find the conversations helpful as they plan workshops and leadership programs for their own students.
In February, we will host three opportunities for you bring a team from your campus together to spend a day talking about how service and community engagement are (or could be) a part of your institutional culture. This is the perfect time for representatives from student and academic affairs to come together and to reflect, strategize and start acting upon advancing service engagement on your campus!
We look forward to seeing you at one of these events and/or on your campus! Don’t hesitate to contact an Indiana Campus Compact staff member and let us know how we can help your campus!
