IMPACT: National Conference
February 16, 2017—February 19, 2017
The IMPACT Conference is historically the largest annual conference focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy and other forms of social action. Building on the rich 32-year tradition of the COOL Conference and the Idealist Campus Conference, IMPACT is the one time during the year when students, administrators, faculty, AmeriCorps members and VISTAs, and nonprofit professionals gather together to learn and share effective practices, improve personal skills and organizational strategies, discover opportunities and resources, exchange stories, be inspired and challenged to sustain our efforts.
The IMPACT National Conference is historically the largest national gathering of student leaders, administrators, faculty, and nonprofit staff committed to engaging college students in service, activism, politics, advocacy, and other socially responsible work. This annual conference builds on the legacy of the student service and civic engagement movement. The IMPACT National Conference, Inc. builds on the foundations of the Collegiate Outreach Opportunity League (COOL) and Idealist on Campus who both hosted annual national conferences for students engaged in community service and civic engagement spanning an incredible history of over three decades.
