Forward Together: Strengthening Florida's Higher Education Engagement Network
Wednesday - Friday, November 4-6, 2015
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Deerfield Beach, Florida
Strengthening the connections between the academy and local communities provides the best hope of revitalizing higher education. A growing body of research continues to show that student learning outcomes and retention rates are significantly enhanced by the high-impact practices and pedagogy of community-based engaged scholarship. To that end, and in a continuing effort to respond to community problems and create healthy communities, Florida Campus Compact will convene higher education professionals to showcase best practices and cross sector collaborations while strengthening relationships among the stakeholders.
