Join a Summer 2023 Community of Practice

Sign up today for this great summer professional development opportunity.

Communities of Practice (CoPs) provide a unique opportunity for Campus Compact members to join peers across the country to dig deeper into specific areas of engagement practice. Through discussions, joint activities, resource sharing, and relationship building, participants develop a repertoire of resources, skills, and knowledge to use in their practice. Above all, the CoPs provide a great space to communicate and share strategies with like-minded individuals from all across the country!

Communities of Practice are open to active Campus Compact members and are a benefit of Campus Compact membership. If you have a question about your member status, please contact Shaquan McDowell at
