Campus Compact is a coalition of nearly 1,200 college and university presidents and chancellors from public, private, two-and four-year institutions representing some 6 million students who are committed to fulfilling the public purpose of higher education – including here in Wisconsin. As the only national association dedicated to this mission, Campus Compact is a leader in building civic engagement into campus and academic life.
In 2016, Campus Compact celebrated 30 years of building and creating relationships across the US. Read the National Presidents and Chancellors Statement from this celebration, which emphasizes their continued commitment to their mission and their action plan.
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.
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.
