Join Verdis Robinson, Campus Compact’s director of community college engagement, for an embedded institute at the Campus Compact Western Region Continuums of Service Conference. Through a series of panels, small group dialogues, and larger conversations, we will explore the unique challenges and opportunities of community colleges and their critical role in preparing students to be informed, active, and mobilized citizens in their communities, states, and the world.
