Fall Kick-off Retreat

September 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm

This event is at capacity and we are unable to accept onsite registrations. 

If you have questions about registration, please contact Summer Sharp at srsharp2 {at} iupui(.)edu.

Our theme for this year’s Retreat is “finding your place.” We will focus on one’s sense of belonging in the uncertain time in which we live.

This annual retreat, which is FREE and open only to Indiana Campus Compact partner campuses, 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.


This year’s opening keynote from Exodus Refugee Immigration Director of Outreach & Immigration Services Megan Hochbein is an overview of refugee resettlement in the US and how communities can welcome and support newcomers, with a focus on how campuses can be involved and will include  a chance for Q & A. Indiana Campus Compact is happy to help Exodus Refugee help our new neighbors. Will you consider adding something from their Amazon wishlist to your next order?


Track one is a deep-dive, day-long workshop from renown service-learning pioneer and social justice activist Nadinne Cruz on renewing the risk-taking vision and values of best principles of service-learning and community engagement and embedding them into actionable work. Each participant will be required to read two very short books prior to the Retreat.


Track two consists of four peer-led community conversations about sensitive topics connected to the work of service-learning and community engagement. We’re sorry, but this track has reached its capacity, please register for one of the other tracks. To be added to a wait list for this track, please email Summer Sharp at srsharp2 {at} iupui(.)edu.

Topics include:

Track three consists of student-friendly programming which will leave students and student affairs professionals with a renewed sense of purpose and concrete steps to get there. The program will include:

Additionally, we will provide space and special programming for Indiana Campus Compact Campus (ICC) Liaisons to connect and to learn how to leverage the resources of ICC and get the most out of your membership.
