Minnesota Community Engagement Network Gatherings

February 22, 2019 - February 27, 2019


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

  • February 22, 2019, South Central College, Faribault, MN — REGISTER HERE
  • February 27, 2019, College of Saint Benedict, St. Joseph, MN — REGISTER HERE

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
