California Campus Compact
Campus Compact is a national coalition of more than 1,100 college and university presidents—representing some 6 million students—who are committed to fulfilling the civic purposes of higher education. As the only national higher education association dedicated solely to campus-based civic engagement, Campus Compact promotes public and community service that develops students' citizenship skills, helps campuses forge effective community partnerships, and provides resources and training for faculty seeking to integrate civic and community-based learning into the curriculum. Campus Compact's membership includes public, private, two- and four-year institutions across the spectrum of higher education.
In 1985, Campus Compact was founded by the presidents of Brown, Georgetown and Stanford universities, and the president of the Education Commission of the States. Beginning in 1988, state Campus Compact offices are established to provide member campuses with local, state, and regional support.
California Campus Compact (CACC) builds the collective commitment and capacity of colleges, universities, and communities to advance civic and community engagement for a healthy, just and democratic society. Our membership consists of over 55 California colleges and universities who promote service as a critical component of higher education. SF State President Robert A. Corrigan served as the California Campus Compact Executive Board Chair from 1995 to 2004, paving the way for SF State to exemplify the core principles of “turning students into citizens.” ICCE is proud to both house and partner with CACC.
