Information and Recruitment Webinar(s)
September 16 at 9:00 a.m.
For the past year, MiCC staff has engaged in exploratory conversations with campuses throughout Michigan related to implementation of Connect2Complete in Michigan. With input from the Michigan Community College Association, Michigan College Access Network, Michigan Nonprofit Association and King-Chavez-Parks Initiative (MDE) we have made the decision to advance on a 2016 Pilot Launch for Connect2Complete: Michigan!
What is Connect2Complete? C2C is a model for integrating Service-Learning and Peer Advocacy into Developmental Education, or other first-year courses targeted at Pell-Eligible students. The focus of this program is on retention, success and completion strategies for students who are most at risk of dropping out before they complete a program or degree. While many campuses have some existing support mechanism, C2C is a tested and proven approach that can amplify the impact of your efforts.
During our webinars we will:
- Share key elements of Connect2Complete model
- Discuss Michigan implementation of this program, for both two-year and four-year campuses (includes consideration of an AmeriCorps proposal)
- Ultimately, identify five to ten campuses for the C2C:M pilot launch

Eastern Region Campus Compact Conference 2015
ERCC 2015 Moving Us Forward: At the Intersection of Community Engagement and Collective Impact
As a vital agent of social change, higher education is integral to creating vibrant, healthy communities in our towns, cities, regions, and our nation. To this end, the 2015 Eastern Region Campus Compact (ERCC) conference will advance our understanding of the intersection of collective impact and community engagement. This conference will highlight emerging theory and practice in place-based collective impact initiatives, moving beyond isolated efforts to conjoin the resources and assets of higher education with those of our communities. ERCC will provide a forum to showcase the strategic engagement of faculty, students and the wider higher education community through engaged scholarship, cross-sector partnerships, service-learning, student research, and volunteer opportunities.
Michigan Campus Compact is co-sponsoring this conference -
we hope you can join us in Newark, New Jersey from October 14-16, 2015
