Eastern Region Campus Compact Bi-Annual Conference

March 25, 2019 - March 27, 2019

Education for Democracy: Innovating in Complex Times:  

Campus Compact believes that higher education is instrumental to creating just, inclusive, sustainable democracy.  In support of that vision, the Eastern Region Campus Compact (ERCC) Conference is a convening of campus executives, scholars, practitioners, students, and community partners, committed to enhancing our democratic society through community and civic engagement.  ERCC provides a venue for thinking critically about the issues, trends, and challenges in our shared work and for building stronger networks among colleagues.

ERCC aims to build personal, institutional, and field-level capacity to foster change on- and off-campus; enhance community-engaged teaching, scholarship, and service; and ultimately transform our students, institutions, and communities. Each ERCC Conference will highlight innovative theories and practices that are advancing the field of higher education community engagement showcasing: replicable practices that better prepare college students for success in their professional and civic lives; pragmatic strategies to develop meaningful, reciprocal community partnerships that transform communities and the academy; approaches to  place-based, issue-driven faculty/student engaged scholarship, learning, and service; and methods for assessing and understanding the impact of our community engagement work.
