Join Campus Compact staff for a Civic Action Planning support session to find the detailed, specialized support you need. Whether you are creating your plan for the first time, implementing an existing plan, or working on future iterations, get the tools you need to keep your work moving forward.
Our Civic Action Planning Institutes and resources continue to evolve with the changing contexts of community and higher education. Civic Action Planning Institutes will bring teams together to begin shaping a plan for institutional transformation and for aligning institutional teaching, research, and action with commitments to equity—social, democratic, and economic. Teams can include individuals from across campus and beyond including faculty, staff, administrators, students and community partners. We also recommend engaging leaders from across campus including faculty, staff from a variety of areas (diversity, ministry, teaching and learning, research, etc), student leaders, and community partners. Teams will have the opportunity to consider new strategies for civic action including applying an equity lens and engaging key campus leaders and will have the opportunity to work together and receive expert consultation on their planning and/or implementation.
Advanced CAP Institutes will bring institutional teams together for shared learning about CAP implementation and planning for future direction. Key focus areas include: Strategy for persistence and sustainability: How has the CAP aligned with other institutional initiatives? How has leadership and participation evolved? Alignment with commitments: Has a focus on equity remained central? What have been the impacts? In what ways has institutional teaching, research, and action changed to align with these values? Next level work: How can we continue to go deeper? What’s been working? The offering will be informed by a pre-survey of registrants to determine final priority areas for focus. The Institutes are open to institutional teams that implemented plans and that continue to advance institutional transformation work through a CAP. The structure will be discussion-based with break out time for individual teams.
Sometimes it is just about setting aside time for shared teamwork, writing, and thinking. This session provides a space for institutional teams working on Civic Action Plans to work together, connect with other teams, and to access individual technical assistance.
This workshop will engage participants in institutional reflection and action planning that helps them identify barriers to participation and pathways to center equity in the ways we do engagement work. Concepts and frameworks developed by Dr. Marisol Morales, Campus Compact's Vice President for Network Leadership, will be introduced. These include: Return on Equity, Asset Based Critical Engagement, and the Prism of Liberatory Engagement. Particular focus will be placed on ways to support students, faculty, and staff of color at various types of institutions.
