Civic Action Statement Planning for Campus Executive Leadership
Andrew Seligsohn, Campus Compact
400 presidents and chancellors have signed the Campus Compact 30th Anniversary Action Statement, thereby making a commitment to develop a Campus Civic Action Plan. Participants in this session will learn how to get started on developing a Campus Civic Action plan. We will focus on how to build a process that yields a plan to build capacity, reform systems and processes, and change campus culture. The whole discussion will center on moving from existing campus resources to an institution that is maximizing the impact of engagement both for students and for communities.Please note: this session is designed for campus executive leadership: presidents, vice presidents, chief academic officers, deans, etc.
