ACCE Experience


Is your campus ready to Actualize its Culture for Community Engagement (ACCE)? Are you looking for custom assistance to identify how to get your campus there? If so, then the ACCE Experience is what you’ve been looking for!

Designed to fit your schedule, and open to Indiana Campus Compact partner institutions, this unique cross-campus experience provides participating institutions with the opportunity to begin the process of examining their community engagement efforts across campus, and to identify focus areas where they will work to shift their campus culture for community engagement.

For more information, contact Laura Weaver, Director of Professional Development and Engaged Learning at laura@ incampuscompact.org or schedule a time to connect.
