Young woman working with computer

On Monday, October 26, Campus Compact will live stream the proceedings of the “Think Tank on Social Innovation and Civic Engagement in Higher Education” hosted by the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement of Washington University and DukeEngage of Duke University. The event will feature scholars, students, and practitioners who will share perspectives on these approaches to social change that continue to ascend on our campuses. The think tank will grapple with where these approaches intersect and where they diverge. The live stream is free and open to anyone; registration is required.

The Think Tank live stream will run from 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM CDT on Monday, October 26 and will be broken into four distinct webinars, each requiring a separate registration. In order to register for any of these Think Tank webinar live streams, please use the webinar registration links below.

There are a limited number of spaces available, so please register soon.
