Event description

Description

Join Illinois Campus Compact as we discuss the vital role that colleges and universities can play in ensuring a fair and complete count in the 2020 Census. A complete count is essential to ensuring that states maintain their federal funding levels and their representation in federal government. By working with students, staff, faculty, administrators, and most importantly, community partners, colleges and universities can support their communities in maintaining important resources. This event is a kick off to a yearlong series of events that will help colleges and universities map out a strategy for supporting a fair and accurate Census 2020 in Illinois. This is open to higher education professionals and community partners.
