Partner & IKONC Events
In addition to our own signature events, trainings, and networking opportunities, we serve as a clearinghouse of information from across the country. We strive to bring our partners the resources, contacts, training, and information that they need to fulfill their commitment to their students and the community.
Hosted by the University of Nicosia, University of Indianapolis and Stellenbosch University, ISSL 2022 is scheduled to take place in person at the University of Nicosia in Cyprus on June 8th-11th, 2022. With the theme “Critical Service-Learning Across the Globe: Transforming Teaching into Social Action,” the symposium will primarily focus on transitions in higher education and the role that critical service-learning plays in social transformation. The Call For Papers is now open!
A Free Course for Faculty -- With our planet in crisis and communities being impacted by growing challenges, higher education is called to action to take the lead in addressing two of the world’s most pressing social issues: Climate Change and Food Insecurity. In service to the highest ideals of democracy, faculty are well positioned to help prepare students to address complex global problems. To help prepare faculty for this vital role, Maine Campus Compacts is offering a timely one-week virtual course with three live sessions stemming from the Campuses for Environmental Stewardship (CES) program.
In summer 2020, NC Campus Compact launched the NC Collegiate Citizenship Project (NC-CCP). Through this effort, we seek to improve civic life in North Carolina by promoting election engagement and civil discourse and dialogue on member institutions throughout the state. Funding is provided by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
Through NC-CCP, NC Campus Compact is hosting a series of virtual sessions in the 2020-21 academic year to introduce member institutions to additional dialogue and civil discourse methods and skills.
