The Power of Partnerships Touches Communities Acrros Indiana
Administrators from 14 Indiana colleges and universities come together for third annual Community Service Director Institute
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana University East and Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana, Richmond have partnered to host the third annual Indiana Campus Compact Community Service Director (CSD) Institute, June 2-3, 2011 on the shared Richmond campuses.
The CSD Institute will provide service learning and co-curricular service administrators with fewer than five year’s experience with an opportunity to learn from leaders in the field of service engagement. Participants will acquire information, network with colleagues from around the state, take part in workshops covering topics such as Powerful Partnerships, The Effects of Service Learning on Millennial Students, Institutionalizing Service Engagement on a Campus, Social Media and Service Engagement, and more. Participants also will receive a common reader, “Partnerships that Work: The Stories and Lessons from Campus/Community Collaborations,” by Charlene J. Gray, James M. Heffernan, and Michael H. Norton.
“For 18 years, Indiana Campus Compact member institutions have mobilized hundreds of students state-wide to communities in need. CSDs work with community organizations to facilitate reciprocal partnerships with faculty, students, staff, and administrators which meet those needs and foster the connection between the campus and the community”, said ICC Associate Director J.R. Jamison.
The CSD Institute was made possible by a grant from Indiana Campus Compact through the generous support of the Lilly Endowment Inc.
