Campus Compact Annual Membership Survey

Campus Compact conducted an annual membership survey from 1986 to 2016. Its purpose was to assess the current state of campus-based community engagement and to identify emerging trends.  To review results of the annual membership survey from previous years, use the links in the menu bar to the left.

Instead, we encourage member campuses to participate in a special collection of the National Inventory of Institutional Infrastructure for Community Engagement (NIIICE).
