NCSL Call to Action

Throughout the conference

The NCSL Call to Action is designed to provide conference participants the time and space to generate a specific action plan to meet the challenges found on college campuses and in our communities.  A team of facilitators will guide students through special plenary sessions that apply specific lessons and strategies from Conference keynotes and workshops to be put to work for good, solving problems and addressing challenges.  As a result of these sessions, students will be poised to create the positive change they seek upon their return home from the Conference.

Learning Outcomes:

As a result of the Call to Action sessions, participants will collectively, as part of a working team:

  1. Identify a change initiative that will have a positive impact on your campus/community.
  2. Develop a shared vision that includes a desired new reality for your campus/community.
  3. Establish an action plan that helps to meet specific goals.
  4. Present change initiative, goals and action plan to receive feedback to enhance opportunities to effect positive change.
