ABOUT

As a regional compact of 12 institutions in seven counties, the South Florida Campus Compact Regional Collaborative (“Collaborative”) has become stewards of place in the South Florida Metropolitan Area. Through this presentation, how to replicate collective impact in other metropolitan areas in the U.S and the lessons learned will be shared. The Collaborative is comprised of public, private, and community institutions that formed in November 2010 with the purpose of sharing best practices in institutional student civic engagement and service-learning.

Over the past four and a half years, the group has defined a mission, purpose, and vision and addressed conference-friendly topics such as community partnership agreements, minimizing service-learning liability, issue-based education, and assessment. Furthermore, the Collaborative has begun to analyze its combined quantitative impact with intent to address community social issues collaboratively rather than in institutional silos. The baseline findings have driven the conversation toward intentional cross-institutional planning of issue-based education. The Collaborative is now at its next level of growth with the development of a strategic plan to engage the community, students and faculty for deepening the collective impact on a single, common issue thereby positively affecting change and developing educated, active citizens who work to sustain our participatory democracy in a regional community.

Live Briefing goals are to:

build community for collective impact among people doing similar work at diverse institutions in a metropolitan area;
share how to solve challenges while quantifying and qualifying the impact of our work within the region; and
identify methods to address social issues shared between institutions in a region through strategic learning outcomes.
