Partners in Change Conference 2016

November 3, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - November 4, 2016 @ 4:00 pm EDT

Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC) is excited for our fall conference, “Partners in Change!” The conference will be held November 3-4, 2016 at the University of Michigan-Dearborn Fairlane Center in Dearborn, Michigan. This year’s convening will blend two of MiCC’s signature events, the Active Leaders Student Conference and Civic Engagement Institute, facilitating a dynamic exchange of energy, ideas and knowledge. The conference will feature a diverse set of workshop sessions, innovative and outstanding keynote speakers, and valuable deep learning opportunities.

Attendance options:

•    Thursday only – a variety of half-day, intensive colloquia options are offered; one targeted specifically for student leaders. Participants are invited to join us for an informal networking lunch to kick of the afternoon!
•    Friday only – a traditional conference format with three separate workshop blocks, designed to address the needs and interests of faculty, staff and students; a morning member meeting and breakfast keynote (announcing our EXCITING new project!); two luncheon keynotes (your choice!); and an onsite service project led by our student planning committee.
•    Full conference – commit to two days of professional development and networking for a discounted registration rate!

Our registration system will ask questions about your role on campus and your attendance plans to identify the appropriate registration fee level for you.
