Description

Community Engagement Network Gathering:

February 27, 2019, College of Saint Benedict, St. Joseph, Minnesota

Join colleagues with significant responsibility and leadership in civic and community engagement in higher education for an interactive day focused on key issues in our day-to-day work. This year, we're offering this gathering in two locations, Faribault and St. Joseph, to be more accessible to colleagues across the state.

Tentative Agenda

  • 10-10:30 — Introductions
  • 10:30-12 — Community Engagement Professional Competency Resource Sharing
  • 12-12:45 — Lunch
  • 12:45-2:15 — Healing Circles reflective practice experience with Hamline University’s Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Center team
  • 2:15-3:00 — Compact Updates: Discussion and input on Minnesota and Iowa Campus Compact collaboration

We will focus on sharing resources and strengthening our collective capacity in the following competency areas identified as priorities by this network at the 2018 Minnesota Community Engagement Network gathering. They include:

  1. Ability to communicate an institution’s brand of engagement
  2. Knowledge of civic learning pedagogies (as potentially distinct from community-engaged pedagogies)
  3. Knowledge of assessment and evaluation methods; ability to assess and evaluate impact of community engagement on its stakeholders
  4. Commitment to developing critical consciousness through meaningful praxis (reflection, dialogue, and action)
  5. Ability to construct solid learning outcome goals
  6. Ability to navigate the institution’s political environment
  7. Knowledge of the ways in which students’ identities inform and frame their community engagement experience, particularly those students from historically marginalized groups

Meals: Light morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Registration: Registration is available through February 20, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. There is no registration fee for faculty and staff from MNCC member campuses. For non-members, registration refunds will be available only until registration closes.
