Campus Compact today announced the scholars and practitioners who will serve as members of the Equity & Engagement Fellows Team for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Fellows team came together to collaborate with the Compact to produce a multi-author book, Anti-Racist Community Engagement: Principles and Practices, which will explore and analyze the diverse ways that anti-racist community engagement principles can be put into practice on and off college and university campuses.
To complement the book, the fellows team will help develop and facilitate a range of professional development offerings for Compact member institutions that draw from insights and principles related to the publication and further anti-racist community engagement practices on campuses.
The publication and Equity & Engagement Fellows team came together after last year’s Anti-Racist Symposium held in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education. Campus Compact will partner again with the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education and UMass Dartmouth to host the 2023 Symposium on Anti-Racist Community-Engaged Pedagogy on March 31, 2023.

“The work of the fellows to highlight and integrate diverse voices and approaches to anti-racist community engagement is a unique and much-need contribution to the field,” said Clayton Hurd, Campus Compact director of professional development and engaged scholarship. “Their commitment to not simply publish the book but also help lead activities that will allow community engagement professionals across our network to apply these principles in practice is a true value add and addresses a real gap in our collective work.”
These fellows will be part of the inaugural cohort of Campus Compact fellows, a group of experienced practitioners and field leaders who will advance Campus Compact’s work in key areas.
“We are so excited to welcome these experienced and passionate leaders into the Compact team,” said Campus Compact President Bobbie Laur. “Their appointments reflect our commitment to elevating and centering member expertise across everything we do. These fellows will play critical roles as Compact moves forward a robust agenda of programming, research, strategic partnerships, and learning communities.
