Please join us for this PACE webinar where we’ll feature Campus Compact’s national effort to utilize civic engagement to promote access to and success in higher education.
In the first of its kind Presidential Leadership Summit convened by Campus Compact (CC) in October 2010, nearly 100 college and university presidents and state CC directors gathered to focus on a single, compelling thesis: that college students who participate in civic engagement and service learning as part of their curriculum earn higher grade point averages and have a better chance of staying in college and earning degrees. We’ll hear about what has happened since the Summit and what lessons have been learned that can inform the work of other higher education institutions. Once you register for the webinar, you’ll be redirected to a link to A Promising Connection, the white paper published by CC for the Summit.
Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, will moderate the webinar. Our two speakers will be Dr. Maggie Stevens and Dr. Art Scott. Dr. Stevens is the Executive Director of Indiana Campus Compact and serves as the primary liason to the presidents and chancellors of member campuses. Dr. Scott has served as the President of Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania since 2003.
PACE, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, is an affinity group of the Council on Foundations and serves as a learning collaborative of funders doing work in the fields of civic engagement and service.
