Abstract: Moderator: Amy Driscoll (Associate Senior Scholar, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching). Panelists: David Mathews (President, Charles F. Kettering Foundation; Former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in the Ford Administration; Former President, University of Alabama), Roderick G. Chu (Chancellor Emeritus, Ohio Board of Regents). Abstract: This session will feature a discussion circle of prominent leaders in key sectors who have spent much of their careers integrating civic responsibility into their professional lives, as well as the organizations they represent. Organizations and individuals are doing their work differently as they commit to sharing in the obligations of a broad and diversified community. Colleges and universities, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies are supporting their employees as they integrate their work with the communities they serve. The ethos of engagement is shaping the educational and work choices of many young people, too. When professionals take on civic work, how is democracy served? How are we changed? What is the impact on institutions, organizations, and professional cultures and practices? What are the implications for higher education?
