You're Invited: How Should Higher Education Help Us Create the Society We Want?

We know that learning is valuable not solely for rote memorization of dates, figures, and facts, but for citizens to be informed and equipped to wrestle with the ethical, moral, and social dilemmas within which we operate. Education in and of itself is a valuable goal, but it can also, more importantly, be a means to a more just and vibrant democracy in which all voices and views are engaged. To this end, Minnesota Campus Compact is convening conversations across the state about how higher education help us create the society we want. For current and past students, and lifelong learners of all ages, class is in session!

Shaping Our Future
How Should Higher Education Help Us
Create the Society We Want?

Minnesota Campus Compact is organizing a series of dialogues inviting campus and community members to consider different perspectives on the public purposes of higher education—advancing economic competitiveness, offering individual opportunity, and preparing people to work together to solve problems—and to identify common ground and priorities for action locally.  Our goals are not only to foster new kinds of civil civic dialogue and build capacity to facilitate dialogues, but also to increase public awareness and support for campuses’ civic work.  Partners in this initiative include the American Commonwealth Partnership, the Blandin Foundation, the Kettering Foundation/National Issues Forums Institute, Public Agenda, and the Travelers Foundation.

What to Expect

During the first hour, participants will discuss the three perspectives provided in the National Issue Forums guide (available, with other background materials and an introductory video, at http://www.nifi.org/issue_books/detail.aspx?catID=10&itemID=21640).  After a short break, participants will identify common ground for action and discuss local priorities for collaboration.  Participants may share information about current activities related to the priorities that emerge, and brainstorm ways they might build on existing strengths.
