Keynote presentation by: Dr. Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, Director of CIRCLE, Tufts University, and Kathy Cramer, Director of the Morgridge Center for Public Service, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Please join the Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies for our third annual Fall Event. This all-day event is free, with food provided!

This year’s theme offers new perspectives on the question, “What Does Democracy Look Like?” We’ll explore the diverse range of democratic methods employed by researchers and practitioners on a range of topics, including civic engagement and health, cooperatives and democratic ownership, democratic evaluationyouth organizing, civic engagement and youth development, and more!

Between our community partner “mixer” morning session and evening social hour, university and community partners will have opportunities to build connections and inform future directions of the CommNS.

 It’s an event you won’t want to miss! Please see below for more information and to register.
