Student News: Sociology students present at the National IMPACT Conference in New Mexico

 

Updated: 04-08-2013

 

Three sociology majors attended the National IMPACT Conference, February 21-24, in Albuquerque, New Mexico where they presented their work.  Kendall Broussard, Mariah Dantzler, and Colette Perrine conducted a workshop on an initiative started by the sociology capstone class of fall 2011 and continued by the fall 2012 class.  The initiative is called the REACTdesk (Resource for Engaging Active Citizens Today) and works to bridge the gap between campus and community.

The IMPACT Conference is historically the largest annual conference focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy and other forms of social action. Building on the rich 28-year tradition of the COOL Conference and the Idealist Campus Conference, IMPACT is the one time during the year when students, administrators, faculty, AmeriCorps members and VISTAs, and nonprofit professionals gather together to learn and share effective practices, improve personal skills and organizational strategies, discover opportunities and resources, exchange stories, be inspired and challenged to sustain our efforts.
