EASTERN REGION CAMPUS COMPACT BIENNIAL CONFERENCE
March 25 - March 27
Education for Democracy: Innovating in Complex Times
Campus Compact believes that higher education is instrumental to creating just, inclusive, sustainable democracy. In support of that vision, the Eastern Region Campus Compact (ERCC) Conference is a convening of campus executives, scholars, practitioners, students, and community partners, committed to enhancing our democratic society through community and civic engagement. ERCC provides a venue for thinking critically about the issues, trends, and challenges in our shared work and for building stronger networks among colleagues.
ERCC aims to build personal, institutional, and field-level capacity to foster change on- and off-campus; enhance community-engaged teaching, scholarship, and service; and ultimately transform our students, institutions, and communities. Each ERCC Conference will highlight innovative theories and practices that are advancing the field of higher education community engagement showcasing: replicable practices that better prepare college students for success in their professional and civic lives; pragmatic strategies to develop meaningful, reciprocal community partnerships that transform communities and the academy; approaches to place-based, issue-driven faculty/student engaged scholarship, learning, and service; and methods for assessing and understanding the impact of our community engagement work.
