Community Engagement Conference

The Office of the Senior Associate Dean for Community Engagement and the Community Engagement Core host an annual Community Engagement Conference, putting focus on a particular community engaged or community-relevant topic or theme while bringing together academic and community partners for discussion, education and action. In sessions to facilitate education, networking, recognition and promotion of Community Engagement we aim to strengthen community and academic collaboration around health by exploring and growing our common ground to improve the lives of Wisconsin Communities.

New format, same great opportunity! Community Engagement Week is being changed to a Conference Series, with smaller events planned throughout the year.
