Student Civic Action Academy

November 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 4, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Save the date for our inaugural Civic Action Academy.

This is a new, professional development opportunity for students interested in learning new ways of making a difference and building skills through civic and community engagement. A collaboration between Minnesota and Iowa Campus Compacts, it will be held November 3 and 4, 2017 at Grand View University in Des Moines.

Students from across the Minnesota and Iowa (undergraduate, graduate, and beyond) are invited to learn from professional across sectors. Sessions will offer skill-building in civic action including philanthropy, nonprofit leadership, dialogue, advocacy, and more. Students will also have a chance to learn what others are doing on other campuses and network with peers.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, please contact Justin Ellis at jellis {at} iwcc(.)edu. Registration and opportunities to present will open later this year.

There is a call for proposal for student presenters for the Iowa Student Civic Action Academy. This is an opportunity for students at any stage of their academic career to share their work. The deadline for student presentation proposals is September 29, 2017. Submit your proposal here.

Register for the conference here.
