Starting Thinking About Next Year’s PACE Conference.

The North Carolina Campus Compact PACE Conference will be held February 10, 2016 at High Point University. Educators are invited to submit workshop proposals for this day-long event. PACE seeks to inform and advance the research and practice of community engagement by sharing research findings, innovative program design and partnership models, effective curricular and co-curricular models, and best practices.

In addition to a slate of high-quality workshops and presentations, #PACE2016 will also mark a significant reflective moment for service-learning and community engagement. Thirty years ago Campus Compact was formed. Twenty years ago, in 1995, Edward Zlotkowski published the article “Does Service-Learning Have a Future?” — which strongly influenced the development of service-learning as an academic endeavor. To mark that anniversary, Dr. Zlotkowski, along with Drs. Patti Clayton and Sarah Stanlick, will lead PACE participants in considering ideas and questions that are emerging from all across the community engagement world at this — possibly threshold — moment in our shared work.

The CALL FOR PROPOSALS is now available online. Deadline to submit is November 9, 2015.
