Michigan Campus Compact (MiCC) is excited for our fall conference, "Partners in Change!" The conference will be held November 3-4, 2016 at the University of Michigan-Dearborn Fairlane Center in Dearborn, Michigan. This year's convening will blend two of MiCC's signature events, the Active Leaders Student Conference and Civic Engagement Institute, facilitating a dynamic exchange of energy, ideas and knowledge. The conference will feature a diverse set of workshop sessions, innovative and outstanding keynote speakers, and valuable deep learning opportunities.

Attendance options:

•    Thursday only – a variety of half-day, intensive colloquia options are offered; one targeted specifically for student leaders. Participants are invited to join us for an informal networking lunch to kick of the afternoon!
•    Friday only – a traditional conference format with three separate workshop blocks, designed to address the needs and interests of faculty, staff and students; a morning member meeting and breakfast keynote (announcing our EXCITING new project!); two luncheon keynotes (your choice!); and an onsite service project led by our student planning committee.
•    Full conference – commit to two days of professional development and networking for a discounted registration rate!

Our registration system will ask questions about your role on campus and your attendance plans to identify the appropriate registration fee level for you. Registration fees are listed here on our website, as is the registration link - http://micampuscompact.org/partnersinchange.aspx.
