Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to the first ILCC newsletter of the new year. We are excited to be using a new platform that will streamline our communications to our members and supporters. Exciting things are happening in 2016!  ILCC will be starting a strategic planning process in March that will help refine our goals in support of civic engagement on campuses across Illinois. There will be opportunities for our members to participate and we need your help!  Please keep an eye on these emails for more information.

Illinois Campus Compact works with nonprofit educational organizations to bring our members the most comprehensive and up to date resources on all things civic engagement.  That is reflected in our partnership with the Campus Election Engagement Project and our collaboration with the Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin Compacts for the Upper Midwest Civic Engagement Summit. In support of that goal, BreakAway, a national nonprofit that provides resources for alternative break opportunities to students across the country is interested in working with ILCC to find ways to support alternative breaks on your campuses.  Please fill out this short survey that will help define what that relationship looks like.

Lastly, a quick reminder that Newman Civic Fellows Award nominations are due Monday February 29th. Each member president and chancellor may nominate one student to become a Newman Fellow to represent their school in a national group of student leaders.  Newman Civic Fellows will be announced March 31, 2016. The 2016 nomination form can be found here.

After the National Campus Compact conference and President's Summit in March, I will be hitting the road again to visit you all on your campuses.  Please let me know if there are events or programs you’d like me to attend. I look forward to working with you all in 2016!
