The mission of Campus Compact for Wisconsin (CCWI) is to strengthen civic engagement and service-learning partnerships between Wisconsin’s post-secondary institutions and the communities they serve.
Campus Compact for Wisconsin (CCWI) envisions a state where concepts such as service, volunteerism, and activism are united with educational goals to develop college graduates who are prepared not only for a career, but also for a life as informed and involved citizens at both the local and global levels. Partnerships for civic engagement are formed by educational institutions from pre-school through college to strengthen children, families, campuses, and communities.
