Campus Compact enables colleges and universities to educate students for lives of citizenship and leadership in a democratic society. Our work is grounded in a fundamental respect for students as agents of change, including change in their own learning environments. We recognize the power of experiential learning and the necessity of augmenting good intentions with an understanding of context, policy, and real world impact. These principles undergird our approaches to supporting students’ development as civically engaged citizens and leaders. Through our Newman Civic Fellowship, we support a cohort of community-committed students in their development as public problem solvers. In addition to this direct support for student leadership, we also maintain a library of models and resources to elevate best practices for engaged teaching, research, and partnership development.
The resources below are organized by the learning outcomes of the Newman Civic Fellowship but are intended to serve as resources for all students interested in becoming more effective public problem solvers and those campus and community educators supporting their development.
