Our Unfinished Work: Creating Equity through Service-Learning and Civic and Community Engagement

Tuesday, April 5 – Wednesday, April 6, 2022

The 2022 SLCE Conference is titled: Our Unfinished Work: Creating Equity through Service-Learning and Civic and Community Engagement. The conference will provide community engaged practitioners, faculty, administrators, community partners, and students an opportunity to reflect and learn about how justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) can be advanced through the collective efforts of our member institutions’ civic and community engagement initiatives and programming. The 2022 SLCE Conference will: 

  • Bring student, faculty, and community leaders of SLCE together for leadership development in the field
  • Provide cross pollination and celebration of effective practices 
  • Create opportunity for community partner leaders to join in conversation about deepening impact and engagement
