Presidential Engagement

NCCE is a presidential organization. We know college and university leaders play a key role in developing and institutionalizing higher education community engagement. We annually invite the president or chancellor to join on behalf of their institution and then we work with relevant campus constituents to provide resources and support.  Our work is guided by an Executive Board comprised of member presidents.

Presidents Forum 

Since 2011, NCCE has convened presidents and chancellors to discuss key issues related to higher education civic and community engagement. The Presidents Forum is hosted by a member president and chancellor on their campus or by the NCCE Executive Board. It is typically held on the same day as the PACE Conference.
