Welcome to the 2021 Community Engagement Institute. The institute brings together administrators, faculty, staff, and community representatives from the Inland Northwest (and beyond) to discuss Service-Learning and community engagement initiatives, share promising practices and examine how institutions may become better able to seek solutions to complex challenges.  The conference seeks to share innovations in Service-Learning pedagogy and scholarship as well as to further discussions about the meaningful engagement of higher education and communities to respond collaboratively to issues of need. We're glad you're joining us!
