Midwest Campus Compact Conference Call for Proposals

November 7, 2018

Deadline: February 8, 2019

2019 Midwest Campus Compact Conference
“Dispatches from the Midwest: Community, Collaboration, and Critical Perspectives”
May 29 – 31, 2019 @ University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

The Campus Compacts of the Great Plains, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin invite proposals for the 2019 Midwest Campus Compact Conference, which will take place May 29 – 31, 2019, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Whether you are new to community-engaged learning and scholarship, curious about learning the basics of community-campus partnerships, or a seasoned engaged scholar or community engagement professional seeking innovative approaches and discussion of important issues, this conference will provide opportunities to learn, explore, connect, and prepare for bold and thoughtful action.

Each session proposal should relate to the conference theme: Dispatches from the Midwest: Community, Collaboration, and Critical Perspectives. We are focused on the ways in which our community-campus partnerships are able to address the concerns and impact the lives of those living in communities throughout the Midwest. Evidence of these partnerships is more than simply adding more community-engaged courses, research projects, and programs, but rather it involves a greater understanding of the identities that shape our work. Including fostering more inclusive and equitable spaces for collaboration, supporting multiple forms of changemaking, rewarding the production of multiple forms of scholarly products, and integrating a sense of civic agency and responsibility into the core of our institutional cultures.

60 minutes, presented on Thursday & Friday, May 30 – 31, 2019
We are seeking presentations that will inform or advance the study and practice of all forms of community-engaged learning and scholarship in higher education. Sessions should allow attendees to engage in learning and discussion on a particular topic and share best practices through creativity while providing an active-learning opportunity with clear deliverables and concrete “take-a-ways” for participants. Formats can range from:
• Skill-Building Session
• Issue-Focused Session
• Knowledge Creation Session
• Story Session
• Community Conversations
