Compact 21 Midwest West: Resilience & Responsibility for Racial & Environmental Justice
Western Region Campus Compact, a partnership of Western Campus Compact institutions and state offices, is pleased to announce that on March 17, 2021 we will host our Continuums of Service as a one-day virtual re-envision conference. The conference will focus on resilience and responsibility for racial and environmental justice, two components of the systemic injustice that result in the unkept promise of full and equitable participation in education, employment, health care and environmental quality.
Conference participants will explore how to partner in renewing the promise of full participation in higher education, a flourishing democracy, and productive, meaningful and gainful careers. In keeping these promises, we will support the development of student, community and campus resilience by achieving and defining a civic consensus on our collective boundary-spanning responsibilities for racial and environmental justice. We are excited to welcome University of Denver’s Dr. Tom Romero II as our keynote. Dr. Romero’s remarks will be followed by a panel conversation with administrators, partners, faculty, and students from the western U.S.
Continuums of Service is part of a two-part series of virtual conferences, the second of which being the Midwest Campus Compact Conference on May 25. These virtual conferences have no cost for current Campus Compact affiliates in good standing. More information on the conference can be found on the Continuums of Service website. See you in March!
