NC Campus Compact’s annual student conference returns November 2-3, bringing together student leaders from across the state to learn and share best practices in civic and community engagement. This year’s conference, hosted by UNC Wilmington, explores the theme of “Becoming Citizens, Becoming Community” with lectures, workshops, awards, and film.
Keynote speaker Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen, heads a Saturday, November 3 line-up of regional experts on such issues as poverty, education reform, and green energy. Additional sessions will highlight best practices in campus-community engagement, including alternative break programs, leadership ethics, and building partnerships. The prize-winning films from NC Campus Compact’s documentary film shorts competition will be screened, and several student leaders will receive special service awards. More than 125 participants from 18 campuses across the state will participate.
On Friday, November 2, CSNAP participants will tour local EUE/Screen Gems Studios and view the film, “#ReGeneration” in collaboration with Wilmington-based Working Films, a media company that “links non-fiction films with cutting-edge activism.”
