To foster college students as active citizens, RI Campus Compact supports student engagement through the RI Student Service Summit (RISSS), an annual conference for college students engaged in community service and spurring positive change in their communities.
RISSS aims to strengthen the skills and awareness of RI’s undergraduate student service leaders by providing them with personal and professional development opportunities that deepen their service and education experience. Additionally, students have the opportunity to network across member campuses which often results in cross-campus collaborative efforts that are supported through RICC Raise Your Voice grants and the Newman Civic Fellows program.
Past RISSS themes have included: Taking the Lead: Social Change Agents for the 21st Century; Sustain + Ability: A Focus on Campus, Community, and Self; Telling Our Story; Re-Imagining Citizenship
Interested in participating in this year’s Rhode Island Student Service Summit? Or perhaps bringing RISSS to your campus? We are currently looking for student leaders to help plan the event and mobilize college students across the state. Contact Mary Alice O’Connor at email@example.com for more details.
