"The work of all of us who facilitate college and university civic engagement is central to our institutions," said Campus Compact president Andrew Seligsohn. "That's because the public purposes of higher education--developing citizens and advancing public goods--are the purposes of higher education--the reasons why our institutions were founded and why they continue to deserve public support."
On August 6, 2015, Ohio Campus Compact (OCC) hosted its annual statewide member gathering at Higley Hall on the Denison University campus. Sixty-seven registered guests attended the conference from 26 member institutions. The event began with a keynote address from Dr. Andrew Seligsohn, the president of Campus Compact and an opening note from OCC’s Executive Director, Dick Kinsley.
The conference schedule was divided into breakout sessions and affinity group discussions. The offered breakout sessions provided the opportunity to explore successful campus engagement models and learn methods ripe for integration on member campuses.
Affinity groups followed each round of breakout sessions, and brought together campuses connected by similar structures to discuss their current challenges, best practices, and how they envision OCC supporting their civic engagement work on campus.
The day encouraged idea-sharing and support amongst college and university community engagement offices across Ohio, and made clear OCC’s commitment to advancing the public purpose of Ohio’s college and universities through practical workshops and collaboration.
