Regional Network Gatherings
CCWI regional network gatherings offer an opportunity to network and dialogue on high impact practices in community engagement. These meetings take place in four regions across Wisconsin each Fall. Gatherings are free to students, faculty, staff, and community partners from all member campuses. Each regional gathering is hosted by a CCWI member campus in the area. Each gathering will include the opportunity for members of the region to highlight community engagement projects and practices taking place on their campus.

2018 Theme – Challenge and Change: Envisioning the Future of Civic Engagement in Wisconsin
We live in challenging and changing times. Major economic, social, and political disruptions have led to questions about the purpose and meaning of many of our institutions, including our colleges and universities. This upheaval can cause stress, conflict, and uncertainty. Yet, challenge and change can also spark creativity and innovation. This year our regional gatherings will focus on: 1) an opportunity for discussion and brainstorming around both challenges and opportunities for higher education institutions committed to civic and community engagement and 2) in light of these challenges and opportunities, what is our collective vision for the future of WiCC and its partnerships with higher education institutions throughout the state. Join new Director, Trina Van Schyndel, and colleagues from across Wisconsin as we seek to talk, listen, and grow together. Lunch will be provided!
