Upcoming Meetings
2014 ADP/TDC Civic Summit: Realizing the Civic Mission of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities September 28, 2014 - September 29, 2014
Atwood Memorial Center, St. Cloud State University

A summit co-organized by AASCU’s American Democracy Project, The Democracy Commitment, Minnesota Campus Compact, and St. Cloud State University and sponsored by Hobsons.

Ten years ago, Minnesota Campus Compact and St. Cloud State University hosted one of the first regional ADP meetings. Today, civic engagement is more widely recognized as a strategy for supporting students’ academic success and preparation for work, life, and citizenship. Yet our leaders still seek deeper integration of civic engagement into the student experience and campus culture, as well as clearer communications on the public and educational value of civic work.

Participation is open to anyone interested, including faculty, staff, students, administrators and community partners.
