Background

In recognition of Campus Compact’s 30th anniversary in 2015-16, our Board of Directors asked member presidents and chancellors to join in signing an Action Statement, a declaration of shared commitment to the public purposes of higher education and a promise to develop a Campus Civic Action Plan to realize those purposes more fully.

Since then, more than 450 Presidents and Chancellors have signed on, committing their campuses to create and publicly share Civic Action Plans within a year.

Current Research Efforts

Danielle Leek, Phd, Campus Compact’s Director of Professional Learning, is leading a systematic analysis of the Civic Actions Plans in order to answer key questions about how campuses are advancing the national agenda to reclaim the public purposes of higher education.

IUPUI is currently completing an impact study of Civic Action Plans exploring the effect of the planning process on institutions.
