The Journey Begins

Welcome to the Agora Project, a space for civic dialogue and reflection about campus and community engagement, hosted by Campus Compact of the Mountain West. Over the past 17 years that I’ve been a part of Campus Compact I’ve noticed that while formal workshops, conferences, and trainings are essential to moving the field of higher education engagement forward, they rarely provide opportunities for dialogue about the unanswered and oftentimes unanswerable questions that arise within the field.

The Agora Project is a space to dialogue, to share resources that deepen our thinking about the world around us, and to elevate the practice of learning from one another without the goal of winning an argument or emerging as the conversational victor. We all have a perspective to share that is real, that is valuable, and that is true. Share what is real to you. Share what is valuable and sacred to you. Share what is true for you. Join us in the Agora Project.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
