You are invited to join colleagues for a day focused on the strategies and purposes for advancing higher education institutions’ civic commitments.
“Becoming an Engaged Campus” will be on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Center for Business and Technology, North Hennepin Community College, Brooklyn Park.
The opening panel will feature Andy Furco, Associate Vice President for Public Engagement at the University of Minnesota; Brian Rosenberg, President of Macalester College; John O’Brien, President of North Hennepin Community College; and Tania Mitchell, Assistant Professor of Postsecondary Teaching and Learning at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, reflecting on the national roundtables and context that informed A Crucible Moment and on their own experiences deepening civic learning and democratic engagement. Breakout sessions will then focus on topics identified as priorities by members, including assessment, the Carnegie community engagement classification, and a discussion among academic administrators facilitated by Mark Braun, Provost of Gustavus Adolphus College.
