Community Engagement, Service Learning and Solidarity
DePaul University is proud to host this third iteration of the Conference on Community Engagement and Service Learning in partnership with
Australian Catholic University (ACU).
Since 2019, our two institutions have worked together to share information, lessons learned, successful practices and innovative ideas to deepen engagement with our respective communities. In doing so, we have furthered our collaboration with each other and deepened our practice of community engagement.
This year we are looking forward to another successful conference, and we are pleased to host our friends from ACU at DePaul and to welcome them to the Windy City.
We welcome the submission of abstracts for in-person or online presentations related to the praxis, research, and scholarship of community engagement and service-learning (CE/SL).
Abstracts are to be limited to 250 words and presentations will be 20 minutes in duration. There also will be opportunities for a physical and virtual poster presentation session.
Submissions close: Thursday, August 31, 2023.
