"Elaine Ikeda brings to California Campus Compact a wealth of experience in service learning and student development," said Corrigan, who serves as executive chair of CACC. "She is a nationally recognized researcher and administrator who will help our Compact campuses and students become more deeply involved in active, hands-on learning and civic engagement."

Ikeda, who will begin her new post Sept. 5, will be responsible for leading the efforts of CACC in promoting community service learning and civic engagement. Her duties will include grant-writing and fund-raising activities, interacting with association members and collaborating with key players at other universities.

California Campus Compact, which is based in the San Francisco Urban Institute, promotes the development of strategies to integrate community service learning and academic study. Formed in 1988 as an association of college and university leaders in California, CACC supports more than 55 member institutions of higher education.

Ikeda replaces Elson Nash, who will join a venture-capital firm for social entrepreneurs in Washington, D.C.

Before joining the Service Learning Clearinghouse, Ikeda was a research analyst at UCLA's Higher Education Institute, where she worked closely with nationally recognized researcher Alexander Astin on service-learning research. Previously, she was peer programs coordinator and health educator for the Health Education Unit of the Student Health Service at UCLA. She has also served on the university's Service-Learning Faculty Advisory Committee, Diversity Research Task Force and the Chancellor's Service Learning Task Force. Ikeda has earned a doctorate in education from UCLA.
