Annual Meeting

The 2021 Meeting will be completely virtual.

The OCC Annual Meeting offers participants the opportunity to:
1. Network with others working to advance community and civic engagement;
2. Receive resources on best practices in community partnerships, faculty development, and student learning related to community and civic engagement; and
3. Share updates on critical state, regional, and national initiatives in higher education.


Ohio Campus Compact invites you to submit presentation proposals for the 2021 Annual Meeting. **Deadline is May 14.** 

We are seeking both traditional virtual and non-traditional virtual presentations (TED/TEDx-type format, hybrid, discussion-focused, etc.) generally focused on:

Advancing our civic engagement work with and for students and local communities.

  • Responding to the ever changing local, state and federal political landscape.
  • Civic engagement in career preparation.
  • Dialogue and courageous conversations between campus and community members, including anti-racism education, diversity and inclusion, and justice and equity.
  • Innovative examples and models of civic engagement programs, institutional support mechanisms, reciprocal partnership design, and responding to resource instability.
  • Utilizing faculty for institutionalization of civic and community engagement.
  • Identifying, engaging and supporting underserved and underrepresented students in civic engagement.

Consideration preference for presenters will be given for the following proposals:

  • Presentation includes student and/or community voice, either in person or via remote/video participation
  • A focus on access, equity and diverse perspectives
  • Opportunities for interactive engagement between the presenter and participants
