Why should your institution create a Civic Action Plan? How do you move your plan from words to action? Creating a Civic Action Plan has been transformational for SUNY Buffalo State College and the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). The plan itself and the process of developing the plan has led to deep and broad conversations and impacts about important issues of reciprocity in community engagement, faculty and staff recognition for this work, and institutional structure and effectiveness. This webinar will provide inspiration and honest feedback from colleagues at Buffalo State and UNI about the initial reasons for creating a civic action plan, the process of creating the plan, the challenges encountered, and the unforeseen tremendous impact the plan has already had at both institutions. We will answer your questions about the process, and encourage you to set up a framework for success through a civic action planning process. Staff from Campus Compact of New York and Pennsylvania will provide reflections on the process across other institutions and from Campus Compact.
