Community Engagement Coalition affiliated student groups commit to send a contingency of 2-3 student leaders from their leadership team to participate in one meeting per quarter. Coalition meetings focus on networking, exploring issues of ethical engagement, hearing from local community leaders and discussing programming collaborations and community concerns.
Student organizations recognized as Coalition members will receive priority in regards to campus resources offered by the Leadership Development and Community Engagement Office (i.e. special grant funds, invitations to dinners with guest speakers, access to local social justice education events and trainings)
Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Coalition recently hosted a series of virtual interviews with community and campus leaders on the topic of community engagement. The interviews, facilitated by Flannery Cusick '21 and Alex Moore '21, are designed to help Northwestern students learn about and from local leaders.
