Systemic Action: Advancing Equity Through College, Career, and Civic Readiness
Thursday, November 8, 2018
Kellogg Conference Center at Gallaudet University
Registration for this event has closed.
The CCMA Presidents’ Institute serves as a platform for the collaboration between higher education, K12, and community partners to address issues critical to Maryland, DC, and Delaware. In 2016 a variety of our network representatives gathers to grapple with these issues from national and local perspectives, and the challenges of implementation. It was an opportunity to explore the intersection of college, career, and civic readiness to strengthen communities.
One of the main initiatives that have emerged from past Presidents’ Institutes is P20 CONNECTS, which capitalizes on the Mid-Atlantic region’s unique capacity to create a P20 leadership development model of civic and community engagement. By providing opportunities for younger youth to become reflective change agents who improve community life, higher education is shifting the paradigm to working with, instead of providing services to, the community.
The 2018 Presidents’ Institute will celebrate Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic’s 10th Anniversary, at which participants will review what we can collectively accomplish to elevate our communities over the next ten years. It will convene the region’s presidents, superintendents, and other leaders in a conversation about the structural and systemic issues impacting education in our region, and how civic and community engagement could enhance college, career, and civic readiness for K-12 and higher education students. This important work can only be done through the collective contributions of our members, partners, and supporters.
