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.
