Community Engagement Administrators Conference (CEAC)

Launched in 2003 as the Community Service and Service-Learning Directors Conference, this event is designed for community engagement professionals – both faculty and staff – who facilitate civic and community engagement programs and initiatives. Renamed in 2008, this gathering allows participants to reflect on their role and work through presentations and workshops, facilitated discussions, and networking. CEAC is usually held in June at a member campus.

Suspended for 2022! Stay posted for Vision 2025 discussions throughout the summer (details coming soon).
