"Fresh off a spring semester dominated by upheaval and uncertainty, we all must now prepare for an unpredictable fall semester and beyond. Moderated by AAC&U President Lynn Pasquerella, this virtual roundtable will explore a range of possible scenarios that could further upend admissions, curricula, and staffing. National experts and campus leaders will discuss the future of online learning, share ideas for supporting students and closing equity gaps, and offer advice for articulating the value of higher education as colleges and universities continue to adjust in the wake of COVID-19."
The Campus Compact webinar series is back for Summer 2020 with a special series focused on the needs of campuses as they think about how to prepare for the Fall semester in light of COVID-19.
Webinars touch on topics like online service-learning, partnerships, and risk management. Each session will include a 30-minute breakout group to discuss these topics with colleagues from across the country, share insights, and ask questions. Join us.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the Service-Learning Quality Assessment Tool (SLQAT), and contribute to the researchers' continued revisions.
From the researchers:
We now invite you to join us in the second phase of our research focused on assessing the reliability and validity of our tool. Specifically, we are looking for service-learning scholars, practitioners, and supporters to assign relative weights each of the instrument’s 28 elements by completing a survey in which you will assign each element a score, based on what you believe its level of influence is on student learning outcomes.
- Given the murder of George Floyd and subsequent call to action in the form of protests of racial injustice, what are your personal reflections.

Please register for the call here. Once you are registered you will receive an email with Zoom call details.
Campus Compact has issued a call for colleges and universities to take action in pursuit of equal justice, equal opportunity, and equal power for all. They also recommend that colleges and universities examine the circumstances in their own communities and take specific steps consistent with their stated values.
"In 2015, following an earlier wave of protests in response to police violence against African Americans, Campus Compact released a set of recommendations for ways colleges and universities can challenge injustice. Read more about what your campus can do to take action.
