CEAC room

Community Engagement
Administrators Conference (CEAC)

Launched in 2003 as the Community Service and Service-Learning Directors Conference, CEAC (pronounced c-ack) is designed for community engagement professionals – both faculty and staff – who facilitate civic and community engagement programs and initiatives. Renamed in 2008, this gathering allows participants to reflect on their role and work through presentations and workshops, facilitated discussions, and networking. CEAC is usually held in June at an NCCE member campus.  CEAC is only for representatives from NCCE member institutions.


June 15, 2023 at Elon University

The last time we hosted an in-person CEAC was 2019. We are so excited to be back together in June. After several years focused on specific topics, this will be a “traditional” CEAC where we are inviting community and civic engagement professionals to present workshop and facilitated conversations on the full range of topics related to CCE.  We look forward to learning the expertise and knowledge of the folks leading and doing the work on the ground. Registration will open on  April 3 ($50 pp).

Now Accepting Workshop Proposals!

We are currently soliciting proposals for workshop and facilitated community conversations. Deadline: April 12.
