The Center for Social Concern will be taking a group of students to the 2018 IMPACT Conference, which will be held March 1-4, 2018, at University of Dayton, in Dayton, Ohio.
The IMPACT Conference is an annual convening of nearly 600 students, faculty, and staff from colleges, universities, and AmeriCorps service programs nationwide. Participants attend workshops on a wide variety of topics, including building sustainable organizations, developing meaningful community partnerships, and creating social justice movements on campus. Other events include keynote lectures, an opportunities fair featuring social justice/public service-focused graduate programs and other opportunities, networking sessions, and panels on a variety of topics.

The sponsoring offices will cover travel expenses, lodging, conference registration, and meals for the selected students representing Johns Hopkins at the conference. Upon their return, participants will organize a "teach-back" session to share what they learned at the conference with the wider campus community.
