Pre-conference sessions offer fantastic opportunities for faculty, staff, and students alike to come together to develop their skills and collaborate toward a specific end goal, generally a project or program that can be taken back to the campus for implementation.
This year the American Democracy Project and The Democracy Commitment have put together an impressive roster of options for pre-conference sessions, (that will henceforth be referred to as “pre-cons”) at the national 2013 Denver meeting, June 6- 8, (registration information can be found here).
Interested in the Global Challenges curriculum? There’s a pre-con for that.
Want to learn more about community partnerships and leadership certificates for students? There’s a pre-con for that!
Need support for grant writing, or even finding the grants in the first place? You get the picture – there’s a pre-con for that.
Our pre-conferences begin and end at various times from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 6. While some of the meetings have attendance restricted to participants in a given initiative, many are open to all. Be sure to read the italicized comments for important information or participant restrictions; if none, it is open to anyone interested!
The following is a quick run-down of the available pre-cons:
All day (9 a.m. – 3 p.m.):
Morning (9 a.m. – 12 p.m.):
Afternoon (12 p.m. – 3 p.m.):

See you on Thursday June 6 in Denver!
