10 Things Students Should Know Before Attending #CLDE18:
In order to make the most of your #CLDE18 experience as a #CLDEStudents, check out these ten things to do before arriving in Anaheim.
Strategic Partnerships and Civic Engagement on College Campuses
Institutions of higher learning must become more proactive in revitalizing American democracy. With a prevalence of newly registered voters, colleges and universities are perfectly situated to create life-long active citizens by providing students with opportunities to engage in the democratic process outside the classroom. Such opportunities are greatly enhanced by partnerships with diverse academic departments and organizations both on campus and within the local community.
Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement Profiles
We’re asking some of the people you might encounter at the Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement meeting in Anaheim, California including the event planners and coordinators, presenters, faculty, staff, administrators, and students to answer a few questions about themselves and their experiences
Engaging New Professionals and Graduate Students in Policy
As the Region II Public Policy Representative to the NASPA Public Policy Division, Krista Saleet gives a number of presentations at conferences and on campuses addressing policy and its impact on higher education. She is noticing a sharp increase in the number of new professionals and graduate students who attend these sessions and asking how they can be more knowledgeable and get involved in policy conversations. To that end, NASPA is working hard to engage all members in policy awareness, advocacy and activism. In this post, she shares resources and strategies for new professionals and graduate students to increase their involvement in policy affecting their work.
