Director’s Update – April 2019

April 3, 2019
Thank you!

Thank you very much to everyone who attended the Annual Awards Dinner and Civic Engagement Institute last month at Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI! We had over 100 faculty, staff, students, and community partners representing over 30 higher education institutions and community organizations attend over two days. Highlights for many of you included Thursday’s awards dinner and pre-institute deliberative dialogue training by Leslie Garvin, as well as presentations from colleagues and hearing from Harry Boyte as the keynote speaker on Friday. We are so pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to get together, network, learn, and grow together!

This month I also wanted to give a special shoutout to those who were recognized through our Annual Awards Dinner:

Finally, a few reminders….the call for Co-Chairs for 2019-2020 Communities of Practice is due April 22. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity to be in a leadership role in the field and support the professional development of others! This opportunity is organized in collaboration between Campus Compacts of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota.

Also, as most of you have heard by now, my last day as Director for Campus Compact for Wisconsin will be April 5. Thank you again for the opportunity to serve as your Director, and I look forward to seeing many more great things to come for Campus Compact for Wisconsin. In the meantime, the search for the new Director is ongoing. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested in the position, please visit for information. Marisol Morales, Vice President for Network Leadership, can be reached with questions at mmorales {at} compact(.)org.

Take care and keep in touch!

Director, Campus Compact for Wisconsin
