“The Economic Value of Cross-Sector Collaboration,” Rockford University’s 9th annual Business Luncheon, will be Thursday, June 29, in the Burpee Student Center’s Regents Hall.
The health of our community’s economy is directly linked to residents’ ability to thrive, and there is growing understanding that the complex nature of social issues facing our communities requires innovative approaches that draw on the strengths and influences of all sectors. Join us to learn how the partnership between for-profit, nonprofit and government entities working through the lens of Collective Impact can accelerate social change and directly impact the economic vibrancy and resilience of our community.
Presenter Jen Keeling is director of Ecosystem Advancement at LRNG, a social enterprise focused on redesigning learning for the 21st century. Check-in and networking starts at 11:30 a.m. on June 29, with the luncheon and program to follow from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Individual reservations are $45, or $350 for a table of eight. RSVP by June 22 online at rubl2017.eventbrite.com. Sponsorship opportunities are available; contact Denise Noe at 815-394-3756.

The Writing Center is a place to talk about writing. We believe that we become better writers when we seek feedback and reflect on our writing at all stages of the writing process.
Our peer writing consultants aid that reflection by asking questions and making suggestions that guide writers toward making effective choices, not just in pieces they discuss in the Writing Center, but also in their future writing.
Consultants are readers and responders, not graders or evaluators, and they’re not experts in every genre of writing. Yes, they provide the crucial feedback of a real reader, but they don’t have all the answers. This basic assumption should help everyone involved with the Writing Center:
For more about who we are and to see where we’re located, watch our welcome video.
Students: are you a stellar communicator, both in writing and out loud? Professors: who are the best communicators in your classes?
We accept informal nominations (including self-nominations) for new Writing Center Consultants throughout the year. Send nominations or questions to Dr. Kyle Stedman at email@example.com.
For more details, including a position description and primary responsibilities, visit our full job description.
If you’re ready to apply, follow these steps:
Select two pieces of writing you completed for college-level classes.
Attach these two pieces to an email to Dr. Kyle Stedman (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the body of your email, explain why you chose those two pieces of writing, why you’d like to be a consultant, and what particular qualities you can bring to the position.

If you can’t visit our physical location when we’re open: The Virtual Writing Center is designed as a digital version of our face-to-face Writing Center.
While we recommend the rich communication of face-to-face consultations, we realize that some writers find it inconvenient to travel to campus. Therefore, you may fill out an online form, attach a draft of your writing, and receive response from our consultants with ideas for revision. Please allow up to 48 hours for us to read and respond to your draft. When we are overwhelmed with face-to-face consultations, we may not be able to respond to requests immediately.
