The International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement (IARSLCE) invites you to join in conversation with fellow researchers and practitioner-scholars through their second annual conference Proceedings, now available online at www.iarslceproceedings2012.wikispaces.com
The Proceedings is an online, interactive publication that provides summaries and references for the over 175 sessions to be facilitated by scholars from around the world at the 12th annual conference this fall (Sep. 23 – 25th, Baltimore, MD). It is intended to increase the public visibility of research related to service-learning and community engagement and to facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers and practitioner-scholars.
How might you use the Proceedings?
~ Discover the exciting range of current research on service-learning and community engagement.
~ Connect with colleagues.
~ Plan your participation at the conference.
~ Engage in conversation before, during, and after the conference.
~ Find new resources and references to support your own scholarship and enhance your own practice.
You do not need to be a member of the Proceedings wiki in order to access information on the conference sessions. However, you do need to be a member in order to post comments or questions. Requesting membership is quick and easy – see instructions on the wiki at: http://iarslceproceedings2012.wikispaces.com/How+to+use+the+Proceedings
The Proceedings is co-created and produced by an international team of graduate student Editorial Fellows (see http://iarslceproceedings2012.wikispaces.com/About+the+Editorial+Fellows), supported by co-editors Patti Clayton (IUPUI & UNCG, USA) and Billy O’Steen (University of Canterbury, New Zealand).

IN 2007 the living U.S. presidents convened in Philadelphia to bring focus to youth in the country. Since 2007 America’s Promise has provided resources to ensure that all youth grow up educated and ready to contribute to their community.
This week marks the Grad Nation Summit in D.C. With a focus on high school completion, this event will again bring focus to our youth… what’s working and what is left to be done!

This is a fantastic organization and I have to give them some gratitude. I went to their conference in 2007 and knew I had to get back to engagement full-time.
My inbox today contained an update on the 2012 Conference happening in BALTIMORE (one of my hometowns!) from September 23-25.
To engage future participants in the conference in a dialogue around the theme of connected knowing the conference organizers have created a blog site to reflect on the theme and its meaning to our work:
Please contact KerryAnn O’Meara at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would also like to add a post to this site.
ALSO! Conference proposals are due March 30th. http://www.researchslce.org/conferences/
