The Engaged Campus: Higher Education for the Public Good

Participants at the 2013 Continuums of Service Conference will discuss the role community engagement plays in how we educate for the public good. We will hear from leading thinkers both inside and outside the academy regarding the necessity of civic engagement in educational success. Further, this conference will help define frameworks for how higher education and its partners develop students into effective leaders who advance the public good.

Presenters include "Team Promise" members Deanna Chappell Belcher, Holly Mar Conte, and Julia Sherman.  We will talk about how we are developing a model for collective impact of the university and community partners in the Promise Neighborhoods.
