Promote Learning and Success

Building on the inherent strengths of colleges and universities, Campus Compact has a special focus on partnerships that support learning along the education continuum. For Campus Compact, supporting education partnerships is crucial to sustaining a democratic society with shared prosperity. Our work emphasizes civic learning, along with efforts to advance college readiness, access, and success. With Campus Compact’s support, member institutions not only build partnerships with K-12 schools and youth-serving organizations but also focus on connecting their internal practices–admissions, financial aid, developmental education–with their civic goals.

To support positive educational outcomes, we:

  • Provide tools and resources to help members build successful partnerships
  • Test emerging models in the field to identify successful practices
  • Employ our network infrastructure to support implementation of high-impact approaches
  • Coordinate the efforts of peer organizations committed on educational equity
