Post Summit Communication:
NobleHour gives organizations an easy online platform to find and manage volunteers and interns, and evaluate and assess their impact. NobleHour for Education is community and service learning software that helps institutions create, manage, and join secure, social online communities dedicated to service learning, volunteering, co-curricular activities, and work-based learning. Service hours are securely verified and credited online, making paper community service hour sheets a thing of the past. After students enter their hours, NobleHour automatically generates reports to measure involvement and impact. Furthermore, NobleHour streamlines communication, helping build those important connections within the community.
Today, NobleHour is staking its claim as "the next generation of online communities" – communities that contribute toward the greater good, online and offline. NobleHour strives to mobilize and measure goodwill. Indiana Campus Compact is grateful for their support in our work to serve our member institutions.
Indiana Campus Compact thanks NobleHour for its continued sponsorship of our Service Engagement Summit.
2013 Fall ICC Member Networking Meetings
2013 Fall ICC Member Networking Meetings
Indiana Campus Compact and selected member campuses co-host two Regional Networking Council meetings for members and their community partners in the region each fall. These meetings give faculty, staff, students, and community partners an opportunity to connect with their regional colleagues to focus on common community issues and discuss ways in which they can work together to address regional needs. A new member orientation is provided at each meeting for all new members to acquaint them with ICC and the benefits available to them as members. The meetings focus on building and sustaining campus and community partnerships and feature morning plenary sessions and afternoon breakout sessions. Each meeting features additional programming for students.
Indiana Campus Compact program staff and the selected host campus share responsibility for designing and implementing the program for the meeting. Each meeting begins with breakfast, exhibits, and a keynote address. The keynote's theme continues with an interactive discussion, workshop, or panel. After a networking luncheon, members are able to choose from a wide variety of workshops presented by Indiana Campus Compact members from campuses within the region. The workshops are followed by a plenary session featuring a panel discussion which ties back to the theme of the morning. The day ends with door prizes and snacks-to-go.

2013 Outstanding Community Partner Award winner, La Casa de Amistad
La Casa de Amistad, South Bend, IN - Outstanding Community Partner Award
The mission of La Casa de Amistad is to empower the Latino/Hispanic community within Michiana by providing educational, cultural, and advocacy services in a welcoming, bilingual environment. The partnership that La Casa de Amistad has created with staff, faculty, and students at the University of Notre Dame is one of the key reasons the mission is being fulfilled. The partnerships with multiple departments across the University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College, and Indiana University South Bend shows true collaboration and has allowed for tremendous growth.
The community partners at La Casa de Amistad have fully embraced the idea of community as classroom - they are true co-educators. Marisel Moreno, Assistant Professor, Romance Languages and Literatures, University of Notre Dame, describes the impact the partnership has had on her students and her, "Teaching service learning courses partnered with La Casa has altered the way I look at teaching and I also know that working with the children at La Casa has been a life changing experience for my students. I believe that is because of our understanding that this is a mutual and balanced relationship where each side performs an equally important task. The last three years have given us, both my classes and La Casa, amazing opportunities for growth and development - precisely what a community partner should provide." Watch video.
2013 Outstanding Community Service Director Award winner, Annie Cahill Kelly, University of Notre Dame
Annie Cahill Kelly, University of Notre Dame - Community Service Director Award
Annie works as the Director of Community Partnerships at the Center for Social Concerns on Notre Dame's campus. As her title suggests, she works with students, faculty, and community partners to facilitate a collaboration between campus and community. What may not be obvious from her title, is the depth of understanding she brings to her work or the joy she takes from the fact that her work is all about people and connecting them to each other with respect and goodwill. The honest, reciprocal connections she facilitates bring about a true learning experience for students and community partners who both benefit from each other's passion and knowledge.
Annie says "Successful partnerships that honor all members thrive on meeting both the learning goals and objectives of the students as well as the needs and interests of the community partner. It is simultaneously humbling and enthralling to witness the transformative effects of partnerships that arise from honest conversations regarding individual interests that then become mutual interests." One of the programs Annie has implemented in her 13 years with the Center is the Community-Based Learning Coordinator (CBLC) model which trains agency partners to be part of students' education and to ensure reciprocity in the partnership.
One of the CBL Coordinators, Michelle Peters, Director of Outreach Services, Saint Joseph Medical Centers, has this to say about Annie, "She is kind, intelligent, patient, and a joy to work with. She does a great job of lifting us up and knowing what our strengths are while allowing us to flourish."
