A little funky weather won't stop it!

FREE - UMES "Get Engaged, Be the Change" Conference!

The 11th Annual Service-Learning & Civic Engagement Conference (SLCE) draws together students, faculty, staff, and community partners from the Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic network and beyond for a series of workshops and transformative discussions around civic and community engagement.  This year, on Saturday, April 7th, the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore hosts "Get Engaged, Be the Change." The event begins at 10am and concludes at 4:30 pm.


The Shriver Center continues to sponsor this regional event. We will cover the cost of registration, but you must use a special code provided in the Google Form (see the link below). UMES is just under 3 hours from UMBC. Towson University colleagues coordinated a bus that will stop at UMBC along the way to UMES. In order to get to the conference on time (and to get breakfast), the bus will arrive at UMBC @ 7 am.

The weather prediction has greatly improved for Saturday. The SLCE Conference Planning Committee is keeping an eye on it. Colleague Alexis Logan-Brown is riding the bus and will be the most informed about delays and/or cancellation. Her contact info is in the Google Form https://goo.gl/forms/5kDj2UtPafcvZ6rm1
