Event Details

The 10th Annual Service-Learning & Civic Engagement Conference (SLCE) draws together students, faculty, staff, and community partners from the Maryland-DC Campus Compact network and beyond for a series of workshops and transformative discussions around the power of collaboration.

Please join us on April 1, 2017, as roughly 300 students, faculty, staff, and community partners gather at the Towson University for this day-long event. This year we celebrate the theme "Be the Spark for Action" exploring ways we can turn our thoughts into actions!


In order to provide opportunities for growth, professional development, and field exploration, the Service-Learning & Civic Engagement Conference will:

  • Provide opportunities for stakeholders (i.e. students, faculty, staff, and community partners) to collaborate, network, and develop their capacity to lead and engage in transformative service experiences.
  • Strengthen the capacity of Maryland and Washington, D.C. campuses to create and sustain university-community partnerships.
  • Celebrate and share the latest thinking about how colleges and universities interpret and advance their civic missions.
  • Explore ways to include the MDCCC P-20 Connects initiative in the SLCE Conference for future conferences.
