“California Campus Compact provides a wide array of resources to its member campuses: grants, awards, publications and technical assistance. But its greatest contribution is in providing an entire map of professional development opportunities that meet diverse needs and bring folks together from different campuses. Newcomers can quickly learn the main routes while seasoned veterans are able to explore uncharted territory. In this way, California Campus Compact lives the notion of a “compact” – it builds relationships between campuses and individuals who are interested in ensuring that our institutions are contributing to the development of a healthy, just and democratic society.”
