We are seeking workshop proposals for the annual student conference hosted by Campus Compact for Southern New England, in partnership this year with Quinnipiac University. The one-day conference, on Saturday, October 28, 2017, seeks to create a dedicated space and platform for students who are committed to community service, civic engagement, and social justice and change.
The theme: Creating Space: Solidarity, Dialogue, Social Justice, Opportunity is designed to provide a framework where students examine their motivations for civic engagement, social justice, and service. We invite you to propose workshops that do one of the following:
(a) add to participants knowledge-base and skills for social and civic engagement
(b) share best practices for engagement, programs and/or projects; or
(c) deepen the understanding of contemporary or historic social concerns. This can be done through reflective discussion, storytelling, shared common experiences, and/or engagement with community partners.
