ICC Archeology

 Liza Newman, Program Director for Marketing and Member Relations

liza2_crpped_frameI’ve unearthed some treasures while preparing for our 20th anniversary year. The treasures weren’t buried in the earth, but instead in some very deep filing cabinets. Among the items that I dug up were the 1995-1996 Indiana Campus Compact Annual Report and a stack of old hard copy newsletters.  In the one of the newsletters, I found a 2001 acceptance speech from Nicole Hallet, that year’s recipient of the Richard J. Wood Community Commitment Award.

The Price of Engagement: Developing Your Dream through a Faculty Grant

J.R. Jamison, Associate Director

jrj2_2_iContact_with_frameEngaging with your community is a rewarding experience that deepens your students’ learning and enriches your teaching.  I know you’ve heard this a million times, and you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t, even if just a smidgeon, believe in the power of engagement.  These efforts, though, aren’t necessarily free—like everything else in life, engagement in and with your community can come with a price tag.

Wait! Don’t throw those vendor collateral pieces away just yet!

It is a time to be inspired and plan action. It is a time to read through all those pamphlets in your attendee folder. Wait. What?

This moment will shape my life forever.

Michelle Clemons, Program Associate, Campus Election Engagement Project.

Michelle_webIt’s always interesting to me how little I remember about the days I know changed my life forever.  We rarely stop during an event and think, “This moment will shape my life forever.”   When I was in seventh grade, I sat inside the Auditorium at Kouts Jr./Sr. High School as a mock Democratic National Convention was held.  Twenty years later, I no longer remember a whole lot of details about that day.

Civic Engagement and Student Participation in Indianapolis Neighborhoods

Susan B. Hyatt, IUPUI, Department of Anthropology

Susan_HyattIn Spring 2010, I was thrilled to open an email message from Maggie Stevens from the Indiana Campus Compact, notifying me that I had been chosen as that year’s winner of the Hiltunen Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Scholarship of Engagement.  This was, needless to say, a great honor for me but even more importantly, it was validation that the time I had spent, working collaboratively with students and with community-based organizations in Indianapolis, was recognized and valued by others.
