Community Engagement Administrators Conference (CEAC)


This conference, launched in 2003 as the Community Service and Service-Learning Directors Conference, is designed for faculty and staff who facilitate campus-community engagement efforts. In 2008, the event became the Civic Engagement Administrators Conference (CEAC). This gathering offers deep reflection about community and civic engagement work through presentations and workshops, facilitated discussions and networking. CEAC usually occurs in late spring/early summer. 

"Planning for Data Collection on Civic and Community Engagement Activities"

June 12, 2018 at Elon University
Facilitated by Anne Weiss, Director of Assessment, Indiana Campus Compact

Most campuses are eager to answer the question "How are the students, faculty, and staff on campus working to address civic issues and public problems?" We will explore this question in this workshop by reviewing a range of strategies to assess community-engaged activities (i.e., curricular, co-curricular, or project-based activities that are done in partnership with the community). In addition to these many strategies, institutions also often approach assessment with a variety of lenses including assessment and evaluation of community outcomes, student outcomes, partnership assessment and faculty/staff engagement among others. In practice, campuses confront an array of challenges to align these approaches into a comprehensive data collection framework and infrastructure. This session will give participants tools, strategies, and information to design, initiate and/or enhance systematic mechanisms for monitoring and auditing community-engaged activities across your institution. 

Registration opens March 16/closes May 31
