Growing as a Leader through Community Engagement
MCW's Office of Community Engagement hosted their fall conference on Thursday, November 1, 2018. The conference kicked off with keynote speaker, Becca Berkey, PhD, Director of Service-Learning at Northeastern University, speaking on "Building and Sustaining a Culture of Engagement: The Role of Individuals as a Creative Catalyst for Professional Development and Institutional Change." Attendees explored how community engagement provides opportunities for developing leadership potential, as good leaders and effective community-engaged professionals share many of the same qualities. During the Community Engagement Fall Conference, attendees explored these commonalities across the community-academic partnership spectrum.
