Title: Assistant Teaching Professor and Community-Engaged Learning Director at the University of Missouri - Kansas City
Title of Talk: Enthusiastic Engagement: Creating Meaningful Community-Student Learning Opportunities 
Bio: Misty Campbell is a talented community leader who is dedicated to long-term relationship building. She has experience with the non-profit, for-profit, and academic sectors--establishing a high level of skill regarding the translation of complex ideas into effective learning opportunities, facilitation of inclusive dialogue, recruitment, talent development, program management, and mutually beneficial collaborations. She is dedicated to helping people translate their passions into tangible community benefits that are rooted in empirically driven practices.

Authentic community engagement is a key tenet of a well-rounded academic experience. Our students crave connection to their community and grow substantially when presented with opportunities to bridge their classroom experiences with skill application in the field (and/or for the field). This requires us to expand our version of community, broaden our connections, and ensure that we are not ‘student dumping’ but creating mutually beneficially opportunities. In this session, we will highlight student-community connections such as documentary production, conference creation and facilitation, resource evaluations and development, expanded internships, and utilizing integrative campus partnerships to scale initiatives.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Anne-Marie Foley, Director of the Office of Service Learning at the University of Missouri - Columbia. Anne-Marie will speak about campus-wide community engaged learning and how it an happen on our campus.
