Civic Engagement Institute

The annual Campus Compact for Wisconsin Civic Engagement Institute (CEI) is a time for community and civic engagement professionals, faculty, and administrators to get together, reflect on their work, learn about cutting-edge practices and news ways to conduct their work, and discuss important topics related to strengthening the civic infrastructure on college campuses. The landscape of higher education funding and the economic impact of colleges on communities in the state of Wisconsin are changing, and campus leaders gather at the Institute to consider ways that colleges and universities may improve the quality of community life through civic engagement, produce solutions in a changing economy, and assess and document impact on student learning.
