Transforming Volunteerism to Social Impact in Conservative Utah
“You know what kind of community surrounds UVU, right?!” When we told our in-state colleagues our plans to transform Utah Valley University’s Volunteer & Service-Learning Center into the Center for Social Impact, they thought we were crazy—and that it couldn’t be done. UVU is located in the heart of a very conservative county in a very conservative state, and is now home to the Center for Social Impact. With our updated mission of "Driving social impact by connecting students and community," we now promote a framework of diverse pathways for active citizenship that goes beyond volunteerism and service-learning. By combining Stanford’s Public Service Pathways and Break Away’s Active Citizen Continuum, we design programs, initiatives, and collaborations that move students from pathway entry points to more substantial community learning experiences. This storytelling session will detail the journey we took to realize this transformation, including the development of our strategic framework, getting campus buy-in and formal approval, and our plans moving forward.

Validating and Enhancing Your Competencies as a Community Engagement Professional: Campus Compact's New CEP Credentialing Program
In the spring of 2019, Campus Compact begins a full roll out its new Credentialing Program for Community Engagement Professionals (CEPs). The role of this conference session is to inform attendees about the origins, purpose, development, and structure of the program as well as to share information about how one can apply for various micro-credentials and work toward earning a broader certification. The session will include lessons learned from the pilot project (scheduled for fall 2018) and will leave ample time for attendees to ask questions about all aspects of the program. The session also provides an important opportunity for Campus Compact to receive feedback from the field about the content, development, marketing, and implementation of the new credentialing program.
