RETREAT Q & A
WHERE ARE WE MEETING AND WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
WHAT HOTEL DO YOU RECOMMEND?
The Inn at DePauw & Event Center is nearby for those of you who need overnight accommodations.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
We will provide a chance to sign up for consultations with ICC staff so members of our partner campuses can learn how to leverage the resources of ICC and get the most out of our partnership.
Participants will have a chance to join interest groups during lunchtime if they are interested in networking with colleagues around a specific topic. We are leaving space for the continuation of those conversations after lunch in addition to the concurrent sessions.
This event is a chance for faculty, staff, and students, of all levels of involvement in service-learning and community engagement, to hone their skills and leave rejuvenated and ready to work. Participants can attend a full-day, skill-building workshop or choose from a variety of workshops designed to enhance the work of practioners, faculty, and students alike.
The Retreat is also an opportunity for participants to connect with others from their region and their campus. We will provide a participant list as well as a list of campus liaisons, who are the main connections with Indiana Campus Compact.
