Abstract: You have a new opportunity to become involved nationally in advancing higher education’s partnerships with communities. In February 2006, 28 national organizations came together at a Wingspread Conference in Wisconsin to discuss how these organizations might, through their collective efforts, advance the higher education engagement movement. The HENCE network was formed and now serves as a vehicle by which these and other organizations can collaborate on advocacy, policy, scholarship, research, and visibility and dissemination issues. This session will provide an overview of HENCE and how you can become involved through your national organizations.
