National service programs not only provide students with opportunities to engage with communities in a real and sustained matter, but they can be gateway to future careers and professional opportunities. Join us for a conversation between Wendy Spencer, CEO for the Corporation for National and Community Service, and President Scott Cowen, as they discuss the importance of national service programs and the growing role of higher education in promoting and preparing students for sustained engagement.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that engages more than 5 million Americans in service through its core programs -- Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and the Social Innovation Fund -- and leads President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve.
Lunch will be provided. Keynote address will be followed by the 2nd annual Tulane National Service Fair. At this event, students will be able to meet with representatives from local non-profits and programs with national service programs.
