Continuums of Service Conference - Honolulu

Event date: 
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 10:00am to Friday, April 4, 2014 - 8:00pm

Representatives of University of Oregon's thriving Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program have been invited to present at the Continuums of Service Conference in Honolulu!  

The 17th Annual Continuums of Service Conference will bring together civic engagement and service-learning administrators, faculty, students and community partners in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii.  The theme for the 2014 conference will focus on how civic engagement and service-learning bridge gaps in education, in communities, and across the globe. Together we will examine current issues and disparities in educational access and success; health; wealth; and environmental sustainability.

Conference participants will have the opportunity to critically examine the manifold pressures of educating students to be global civic leaders and preparing them for a dynamic workforce, while serving the public good and creating healthy, sustainable communities. The challenges facing our communities are complex; it is imperative that we prepare students to be empathetic and skilled leaders, applying their education to solve these critical issues. Evidence-based research confirms that civic engagement and service-learning are effective strategies for strengthening higher education’s ability to achieve these vital goals.
