High Impact Practices and Civic Learning Outcomes Among Community College Students

May 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Presenter: Dr. Tori Vogelgesang This study aims to answer the following research question: How is participation in selected high impact practices (HIPs) that promote social capital associated with community college students’ positive civic learning outcomes (CLOs) such as communication and listening, diversity, and consensus-building? This study analyzed responses to the 2019 Community College Survey of Student Engagement using Minitab to conduct chi-square analysis to test the hypothesis that HIPs that build social capital are related to greater frequency of CLOs. Once the pairwise chi-square tests for independence were conducted, the data are presented in tables and to be used in data-informed decision-making. The most notable finding is that four of the HIPs—internships, in-class group projects, service-learning, and learning communities—were consistently positively associated with each of the CLOs in statistically significant and possibly practically meaningful ways. This research provides information on where community colleges might profitably invest their resources. Tori Vogelgesang, Ed.D., MPA is the Assistant Director at Kentucky Campus Compact,…

Supporting Free Speech for All on Campus

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Recent years have seen the values of free speech, diversity, and inclusion in tension with one another in higher education. But these principles can--and must--be harmonized, balanced, and upheld in tandem, for the benefit of the rising generation and the special role of the academy in our democracy. This presentation will draw on the nuanced history of free speech to present a vision of 'free speech for all', a belief in both upholding free speech and ensuring that people from all backgrounds have opportunities to speak, be heard, and be respected. The presentation will touch on practical tips for faculty and administrators who confront challenges surrounding speech on campus, in part drawing on PEN America's Campus Free Speech Guide and its years of experience partnering with and advising colleges on these issues around the country. Speaker: Jonathan Friedman, Ph.D., is the director of free expression and education at PEN America, where he oversees advocacy, analysis, and outreach to educational communities and academic…

Depolarizing Within Workshop for Students

October 9, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

NC Campus Compact and the Braver Angels Alliance of Central North Carolina are teaming up to host two "Depolarizing Within" workshops.  This workshop is for students only. This free workshop will help you become more aware of your "inner polarizer" and learn a useful method for disagreeing with others About this Event Much of today’s polarization is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often, we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who support the other political party, its leaders, and its policies. This free, two-hour workshop helps participants become more aware of their own "inner polarizer." It teaches how to be critical without demonizing, dismissing, or stereotyping large swaths of the population. And it offers strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded peers when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views. This is a two-part workshop. Part one consists of a 40…
