Civic Action Plan Institute

January 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm



Registration is now available and closes on January 9, 2019.

This event is designed for campus Civic Action Plan teams to come together, get new tools and insights and connect with other campus teams. Teams can be in the planning stages or focused on implementation and can include individuals from across campus and beyond including faculty, staff, administrators, students and community partners. Teams may already be formed or can be gathered for this event. Those forming teams should consider engaging leaders from across campus including faculty, staff from a variety of areas (diversity, ministry, teaching and learning, research, etc), student leaders, and community partners.

Teams will have the opportunity to consider new strategies for civic action including applying an equity lens and engaging key campus leaders and will have the opportunity to work together and receive expert consultation on their planning and/or implementation. In the afternoon, teams can spend time getting to know colleagues from other campuses across the state in facilitated discussions on specific topics key to many Civic Action Plans.
