Eatman (@tkeatman) will provide a framework for discussion, inspiration and action about the importance of the mission of higher education.

1:00 to 3:00 pm Summit on the Civic Mission of Higher Education

Does the civic mission of higher education matter? How can we better tell the story of this mission and its importance? Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about a new campaign to tell these stories and “give voice” to the civic mission. They will also learn to craft their own stories and share them to create a larger narrative.The annual Engaged Campus Awards recognize individuals and groups in Iowa higher education for their work toward the Iowa Campus Compact mission of deepening and strengthening campus civic and community engagement.

Awards nominations are due April 7, 2017. Learn more.
