#BeyondTheSelfie: Linking Identity, Community, and Social Change

What motivates you to do service and work for social change? How can you more effectively collaborate and communicate with other students and community partners? 

On Friday, November 14, Connecticut Campus Compact – a coalition of universities and colleges that promotes civic engagement, social change, and prosperity – will host its first annual Student Community Engagement and Leadership Conference. This FREE conference is an excellent opportunity for Wesleyan students to meet other engaged and motivated young people – potential collaborators – who are working on similar causes in their own communities around the state. In addition to a keynote address from nonprofit strategist Cosmo Fujiyama, there will be workshops covering everything from diversity and inclusion to zine making and effective social media campaigns.

Breakfast and lunch are included, and Wesleyan can provided free transportation for up to twelve people. Contact Diana Martinez (dmmartinez@wes) and Rosy Capron (scapron@wes) if you are interested in attending. Registration closes soon!
