Implementing Your Civic Action Plan:
A Retreat for Chief Academic and Student Affairs Officers and Civic Action Plan Implementation Teams

For the Civic Action Plan signatory campuses, we are hosting a free Civic Action Plan Implementation Retreat specifically designed for staff members from the chancellor’s / president’s offices, Provosts / Chief Academic Affairs Officers, Chief Student Affairs Officers, and select members of the campus Civic Action Planning Design Team.  Participants will be able to network with other chief administrators from across the country who have leveraged their positions to advance community engagement projects on their home campuses.  This interactive workshop allows campus teams to consider strategies for leveraging upper-level administrators to implement their plans. 

–          Provosts and CSAOs from around the country will attend to share their experiences about how to advance community engagement.

–          Nancy Thomas from the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education willalso talk about how to create a campus climate inclusive of all viewpoints and that prepares students for lives of active citizenship
