As students and youth claim leadership in defining the future of our democracy, we gather to imagine how higher education can contribute to the achievement of opportunity and voice for all.

Sessions explore topics such as civic engagement, community-engaged research, civic- and service-learning, institutional change, university-community partnerships, and more.
