Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement Conference (PACE)

It will be at UNCG on Feb. 13th. The deadline for proposals is November 1st.

Faculty, staff and administrators are invited to attend this daylong conference to grow and share the practice and scholarship of engagement. Plenary and breakout sessions inform and advance research and practice of community engagement by sharing research findings, innovative program design and partnership models, proven community/institutional impacts, effective curriculum or co-curricular models, institutional capacity building and institutionalization, and successful community engagement practices. The conference usually takes place on the first or second Wednesday in February.
