Build Communities

Campus Compact’s commitment to the public purposes of higher education drives our approach to engagement with communities. We develop and facilitate partnerships between higher education and communities that produce impact on issues that matter. We view colleges and universities as anchor institutions–rooted to place and interdependent with surrounding communities. In support of that vision, Campus Compact builds partnerships to test innovative practices and actively disseminates knowledge about effective approaches. Our community-building work:

  • Sharing stories of partnerships and initiatives that are making a difference
  • Developing demonstration projects to build evidence about effectiveness
  • Forming partnerships with national organizations focused on community goals
