Mapping Civic Engagement within Higher Education in Ireland
This publication Mapping Civic Engagement within Higher Education in Ireland highlights a range of activities that underpin civic engagement within higher education in Ireland from diverse perspectives. It is a contemporary record and example of current thinking, experiences and rationale in this area. Contributions have been drawn from those working within policy bodies, universities, and community together with third level students.
Encouraging Civic Engagement in Higher Education
About the Conference
Campus Engage would like to invite you to its inaugural conference. We welcome higher education academics and administrators, people involved in community organisations and students, from Ireland and beyond. The 2009 Campus Engage International conference will provide participants from community and higher education with an opportunity to discuss the potential for change offered by civic engagement partnerships in areas such as service learning / community-based learning, research, civic education and volunteering. Four general conference themes related to higher education and civic engagement partnerships have been identified:
Submissions are welcome from individuals but we also encourage collaborative contributions blending community, student and academic perspectives. While not exclusive, preference will be given to submissions that address the general conference themes outlined above.
The conference will be held in the conference centre which is part of the magnificent Croke Park stadium. The stadium is owned by the Gaelic Athletic Association, itself a hugely successful voluntary organisation.
Croke Park is situated in the beautiful city of Dublin, just on the north side of the river Liffey.
Registration for the conference is now open, our early bird registration is available up until the 3rd April 2009.
The conference dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday June 4th in the historic surroundings of St. Patrick's Hall in Dublin Castle. St. Patrick's Hall is one of the most significant and prestigious public rooms in Ireland. Here the inaugurations of the Presidents of Ireland take place, as do other important State functions including State Banquets for visiting Heads of State and we are delighted to have this beautiful venue for the conference dinner.
