2020 Census: Resource Sharing

September 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Zoom Web Video Conference Call

2020 Census: Resource Sharing Zoom Call Register Here Emerging research indicates most students don't understand basic facts about the census, including that it is mandated by the Constitution. Even though the Supreme Court recently decided against inclusion of a citizenship status question, issues of mistrust are complicating the 2020 Census, and the stakes are high for a full and accurate count. Census counts determine how Pell grant dollars, school lunch program funding, and housing resources are allocated to states. That data also determines how many congressional districts each state has. Register below to join us on September 19, 1-2 pm for a conversation about how higher education can engage the census in courses and as an institution -- or peruse these curated resources.

Zoom Web Video Conference Call

Register Here In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major.

A curriculum mapping exercise can show gaps in learning, overlaps in content, and indicate where weaknesses or opportunities can and should be addressed. Seth Pollack, PhD, is Professor of Service Learning, and the founding faculty director of the Service Learning Institute at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB).
