We believe preparing students for democracy and preparing them for the workforce, careers, and continued education are mutually reinforcing. CC4D will advance the combined work of The Democracy Commitment (TDC) and Campus Compact’s community college engagement. The network is led by Verdis L. Robinson, Director, Community College Engagement.
Community colleges are central to Campus Compact’s mission of ensuring that higher education is contributing to the health and strength of our democracy. Community colleges enroll nearly half of all students and play a disproportionate role in educating students from communities that face exclusion, as well as first generation students from all backgrounds.
As Campus Compact engages higher education in the effort to achieve full participation in our communities, our democracy, and our economy, community colleges must and will stand front and center.
