Engaged Faculty Institute Curriculum: Facilitator Train-the-Trainer
Commitment, Action, and Impact: Supporting People of Color in our Community Engagement Field
The COS planning committee, with support from Campus Compact, is excited to offer a full-day student leadership workshop as part of the conference, from 9:45am-2:45pm on April 8, 2017. The Work on Purpose curriculum, developed by Echoing Green, is a deep dive into three primary questions: what is right for you, what is good for the world, and how can you be bold. Through a series of interactive experiences, participants leave Work on Purpose workshops with a road map for identifying their unique purpose and how to put that purpose into action.
Scholarships are available for Newman Civic Fellows in the Western Region to subsidize travel and conference registration fees. Check with your Campus Compact affiliate for more information.
For the first time ever, COS will include Campus Compact|Western Region awards in six categories: the engaged campus, institutional leadership, engaged scholarship, engagement professionals, and students. Click here for a list of the 2017 award recipients!
