Campus Compact Webinar - 'Exploring Core Commitments and Building Blocks of Civic Identity: A Conversation' - February 10
Please join the Civic and Community Engagement Office for the webinar "Exploring Core Commitments and Building Blocks of Civic Identity: A Conversation," featuring speakers Lauren Etchells, Alexandra Koch, and Thomas Schnaubelt from Stanford University's Haas Center for Public Service on Thursday, February 10, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. 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.
The concept of “civic identity” is perhaps intuitive, particularly for people who attend Campus Compact gatherings, but it is not well explored or understood. Colleges and universities are often places where students critically examine and develop greater understanding around a wide range of identities: racial, ethnic, gender, spiritual, political, national, and many others. We develop courses, programs, and support networks that allow students to experiment, explore, and develop greater understanding of individual identities, and how systems of oppression and power and privilege afforded certain identities influence our society. But we rarely take time to define and explore what “civic identity” is, how it is formed, or how it intersects with our other identities.
