Community-Campus Summit 2

As a Distinguished Teacher/Scholar 2008-09, I am organizing Community-Campus Summits. Click here to see all events and to register.

Community-Campus Summit 2

  • Do you want your students to approach their learning with initiative, and innovative ideas?
  • Do you want your students’ coursework to have real impact—on them and the world around them?
  • Do you want to know what professionals are looking for when they consider hiring your students?
  • Do you want to brainstorm about how to heed the university’s call to be entrepreneurial?
Attend these events and take away ideas for your teaching, research, and service.

Community-Campus Summit 2
Wednesday, November 5 from 3:00-5:00
Heritage Room, ACES Library

Hear panelists from the Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (Chicago), the Puerto Rican Cultural Center (Chicago) and Urbana Middle School talk about innovation, value creation and student learning. The Summit includes time for small group discussion and networking.

Follow-up Workshop
Wednesday, November 12 from 3:00-5:00
428 Armory

Use the information from the summit to think about creative community-campus connections for your courses. Special focus: apply the lessons learned from the Summit to grant writing. (You don’t have to attend the Summit in order to attend and benefit from this workshop!)
