Campus Compact National Webinar: 'Building Thriving Partnerships between Colleges and Local Government' - December 2
Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for the webinar "Building Thriving Partnerships between Colleges and Local Government," featuring Derick Brown, Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good, University of San Francisco; Anthony Tirado Chase, Young Initiative on the Global Political Economy, Diplomacy and World Affairs, Occidental College; and Maribel Martinez, County of Santa Clara, Office of LGBTQ Affairs, on Thursday, December 2, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. This event is presented by Campus Compact as part of its National Webinar Series and is free to members of the Buffalo State College community.
As the nation struggles with a pandemic, housing and food insecurity, a strained social safety net, police brutality, unemployment, natural disasters, and racial discrimination, colleges and universities must play a critical role in engaging students with these issues through intentional projects that are designed in partnership with local municipalities. Representatives from two of California Campus Compact urban institutions with extensive experience partnering with or working for city government, along with one current local government representative, will share their reflections, recommendations, and lessons learned on how colleges can effectively partner and engage college students with local government. Presenters will share their perspectives on how to build thriving partnerships with local governments that reflect values of equity, justice, and inclusion.
Please register online for this webinar and any others in the National Webinar Series as you would like.
