The event will feature leaders of the CCE movement who will launch a national network and community of practice – Community-Campus Engage Canada.
When: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Where: Rooms 2220, 2224 and 2228, Richcraft Hall, Carleton University
Info: Registration is required for in-person and live webcast participation. It can be found online.
Media are invited to attend the event.
The CCE movement is growing in Canada which can be seen in government investments, increased CCE research and the growing emphasis on community impact in national conversations. Post-secondary institutions are well positioned to contribute to building social infrastructure in communities.
Community-Campus Engage Canada will focus on strengthening Canadian communities by increasing the capacity, infrastructure and impact of equitable community-campus partnerships. The launch will discuss challenges and opportunities for weaving together a vision of CCE that honours myriad contributions from all stakeholders and keeps community needs at the forefront.
The event will explore why equitable CCE is important, how it can and should work in the various rural, urban, provincial and Indigenous contexts in Canada, how funders fit into the movement and how Canada’s approach aligns with international partner networks.
