Civic Engagement Institute
Launched in 2007, the Civic Engagement Institute deeply explores one civic engagement topic during a day-long gathering. Only campuses that are part of the NC Campus Engagement network may attend.
Participants from each campus typically include an interdisciplinary team of faculty, staff, administrators, and community partners who share a particular interest or expertise in the selected topic. Starting in 2018, the event changed from annual to biennial (on even-dated years).
