Campus Compact is proud to partner with the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford University to expand the reach of the Pathways of Public Service and Civic Engagement and support its associated Working Group.

What are the Pathways?

The Pathways framework and survey aim to advance our understanding of students’ interests and predispositions regarding approaches to social change. The framework and survey help improve the quality of student programming, understand students' shifting needs and desires over time, and implement a common framework and language that can be used across the field of higher education civic and community engagement.

Campus Compact is now using the Pathways as a centerpiece of the Newman Civic Fellowship experience and curriculum design.

The Pathways Working Group

The Working Group is a collaborative effort undertaken by 44 institutions and organizations across the U.S. and abroad to implement, analyze, use, and refine the Pathways framework and survey. The Working Group meets throughout the year and has helped to refine the survey. To learn more about how to join the Working Group, get in touch with Emily Phaup at
