In recent years many colleges and universities have experienced a critical transformation in community engagement, characterized by prolific growth in student and faculty partnerships with communities and alumni. The Active Citizens Conference will explore ways in which higher education might respond to this emotional inspiration and intellectual curiosity. How can we support a culture of active citizenship while challenging students to become engaged scholars? Join William and Mary’s Office of Community Engagement and Scholarship as they tackle this question through keynote presentations, panel discussions, workshops and informal discussions.
The conference will take place February 17-18, 2012. Registration ends February 8. For details about the conference, visit the website
