Participant Resources Service Engagement Summit 2013
Showcase your campus – host an Indiana Campus Compact Networking Meeting!
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. The host campus is responsible for logistics. Each Regional Networking Council 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.

Kathryn Stremiecki, M.S. Ed., Coordinator of Programming and Applied Learning, IU Kokomo hosted a Northern Regional Networking Council meeting on her campus - see below for her reflections on what it meant to her campus.
In the fall of 2010, we had the wonderful opportunity to host the first Regional Networking Council meeting. We were able to not only spend the day networking with our fellow ICC representatives, but we were able to showcase our campus and our programs in a way that we've never done before. Hosting the meeting also provided an opportunity to have a much stronger ICC presence on our campus. It made our faculty, staff, and students more aware of the opportunities we have as a Compact member institution. Part of the program for the day was a panel discussion highlighting the reciprocal relationship between IUK and our community partners. Those partners benefited from networking with other community agencies and institutions from across the region. As an event planner for our campus, I can definitely say this was an easy event to plan alongside the ICC staff. It was an experience that we are so glad we took advantage of and look forward to the possibility of hosting again in the future.
