Call for Proposals

The Governor’s Summit on Enhancing Engagement in the Commonwealth will continue the exciting conversation about expanding service year opportunities and also combine with the annual meeting of the Virginia Engage Network to focus on establishing and growing a myriad of opportunities for college and university students throughout Virginia.

To that end, the committee invites proposals that:

  • Showcase current and planned Service Year opportunities and experiences
  • Address higher education’s role in community development
  • Highlight engagement opportunities taking place on our campuses
  • Emphasize research in the areas of community and civic engagement
  • Describe how colleges and universities can select and implement the opportunities articulated in the Compact on National Service that are most appropriate for each institution

The deadline for proposals is Monday, September 12th, and presenters will be notified by Friday, September 16th.
