2019 Community Engagement Conference: Partnering for a Resilient and Sustainable Future
January 23 @ 8:00 am - January 24 @ 5:00 pm
What role do meaningful partnerships play in creating a sustainable future?
How does a community become and remain vibrant and resilient?
How can we ensure future generations have the clean air and clean water on which all life depends?
Building on the success of 2018, this conference will bring together a broad range of community engagement practitioners to share diverse ideas, engage in robust discussion and actively develop networks to address these and other complex questions.
Faculty, staff, students and community partners will explore the importance and impact of meaningful community-university partnerships during this two-day conference while having opportunities for professional development and making connections.
“For nearly 150 years, our mission has been to elevate our communities through the creation and dissemination of knowledge,” said Ohio State President Michael V. Drake, MD. “Through this event, Ohio State will focus on expanding our engagement and scaling our efforts to address issues that affect us all.”
