This event is being hosted as part of Civic Learning Week (CLW), an annual event hosted by iCivics, underscores the vital role of civic education in upholding and enhancing constitutional democracy in the United States. Throughout the week, educators gain valuable insights and inspiration, students engage in collaborative civic learning experiences, and community members participate in events showcasing the diverse contributions to accessible civic education.

Don't miss our other Civic Learning Week event, Integrating Civic Learning into Courses, Research, and Engagement!

​​Join us for this student-centered Campus Compact Coalition Conversation that highlights Newman Civic Fellows and Student Design Fellows talking about how they advance civic learning programs and projects on their campuses and in their communities. 

Come learn from and talk with these incredible students about what initiated their involvement as youth, what impacts they are making today, and what investments in civic education and engagement they would like to see moving forward.

The Conversation will be facilitated by Campus Compact's Will Brummett, Student Engagement Manager.
