Community Engaged Scholar-Practitioner Network (CESPN)


Registration now open! 2023 CESPN Conference

Saturday, February 4, 2023

In an effort to support a community of scholar-practitioners involved in service-learning and community engagement and as part of the 2023 Annual Meeting ACCU will continue their partnership with Uniservitate to bring together a network of colleagues from Catholic colleges and universities to explore the past, present and future of service-learning and community engagement on our campuses.

At this pre-conference, we will reflect on our unique position as SLCE scholar-practitioners at Catholic, faith-based institutions, explore opportunities to deepen practice and scholarship, dialogue about potential pathways for collaboration and field-building, and determine next steps for action. Additional details coming soon!
