The Campuses for Environmental Stewardship 2021 Summit gathering will bring together faculty and campus leadership in the discussion of how campuses can play a leadership role in prioritizing and solving critical issues like climate action, food insecurity and other intersecting issues. Together, conference participants will consider ways to recognize and reward the importance of community-engaged teaching/learning, design action plans, and strategize how to institutionalize these efforts. This gathering will also serve as a vehicle for cross-state and regional collaboration, networking, and resource sharing.

About Campuses for Environmental Stewardship:
Campuses for Environmental Stewardship is a New England-wide initiative that supports interdisciplinary faculty teams committed to addressing environmental stewardship and food insecurity through the integration of community-engaged teaching and learning in higher education courses. This initiative is coordinated by Maine Campus Compact, Campus Compact for New Hampshire, and national Campus Compact.
