CSNAP Student Conference will let students learn, share ideas to advance campus-community engagement
On November 9-10 in Fayetteville, NC Campus Compact will hold its annual CSNAP Student Conference in partnership with Fayetteville State University. CSNAP — which stands for “Citizenship, Service, Networking, And Partnerships” — lets college students lead and attend breakout sessions that advance the practice of civic and community engagement on campuses across the state. Workshops may address leadership skills, model programs, or public issues.
The 2018 event will also explore the concept of social justice by featuring a panel of local civil rights activists and a group exercise based on Theater of the Oppressed. During the CSNAP awards ceremony, the Compact will recognize Community Impact Award recipients from participating campuses, as well as the Barnhill Civic Trailblazer, one outstanding student whose community service has created new paths to engagement and inspired peers. Learn more about the awards.
All CSNAP participants can also apply for the Marshall Alternative Break Scholarship. Created by former CSNAP award winner and Western Carolina University alum Aaron Marshall as an effort to “pay it forward,” the scholarship offers up to $250 to support a student’s participation in an alternative break service trip. In most years, multiple scholarships are awarded.
Students (and campus staff) should submit breakout session proposals by Oct. 5. Submit via the Call for Proposals.
Registration for the event is open now through Oct. 22. Cost is $75/pp for students, faculty, and staff from Campus Compact member campuses (including CC members from outside NC) or $100/pp for individuals from colleges and universities that are not part of the network. Fee covers all conference materials, plus breakfast and lunch on Saturday.
