“There is no more important organization in California than California Campus Compact when it comes to inspiring, encouraging and supporting higher education’s public service role in California. California Campus Compact has played a key role in helping the University of San Francisco expand and highlight our service-learning and civic engagement work.”

Stephen A. Privett, S.J.
University of San Francisco

“Since its founding more than 20 years ago, California Campus Compact has been a remarkable catalyst and resource in helping build engaged campuses throughout California. California Campus Compact’s support of Cal Poly-Pomona’s service-learning and civic engagement initiatives has been extremely valuable to us.”

J. Michael Ortiz

Mission Statement

California Campus Compact builds the collective commitment and capacity of colleges, universities and communities to advance civic and community engagement for a healthy, just and democratic society.

Vision Statement

In 2013, California colleges, universities and communities are contributing to a healthy, just and democratic society through ongoing dialogue and collaboration, with a strong shared commitment to the development of socially responsible individuals and institutions.

2008-2013 Strategic Plan

During 2006 and 2007, California Campus Compact designed and implemented an intentionally inclusive strategic planning process. A diverse strategic planning committee comprised of students, faculty, staff, administrators and community partners from across the state mapped the history of California Campus Compact, assessed the current context for civic and community engagement in California; developed new vision and mission statements for the organization; identified key barriers to the vision; and developed strategic directions that will allow California Campus Compact to address those barriers and work toward the vision. In total, more than 90 stakeholders provided direct input and feedback as the strategic plan was being developed. The plan was approved by the California Campus Compact Executive Board on March 10, 2008.
