As students and youth claim leadership in defining the future of our democracy, we gather to imagine how higher education can contribute to the achievement of opportunity and voice for all.
Compact20 is the largest and most inclusive national conference focused on the role of higher education in building democracy and healthy communities. Sessions explore topics such as civic engagement, community-engaged research, civic- and service-learning, institutional change, university-community partnerships, and more. Compact20 provides professional development and networking opportunities for community engagement professionals, engaged faculty, community partners, student civic leaders, and campus senior leaders.
Biennial Summit of Presidents & Chancellors
Colleges and universities are essential to achieving the promise of full participation for everyone in our democracy, our economy, and our culture. Campus Compact’s biennial Summit of Presidents & Chancellors is an opportunity for leaders from all sectors of higher education to come together to discuss the practical steps we can take now to move closer to realizing that promise.
Join us for a reception and awards ceremony to recognize achievement in advancing the public purposes of higher education. Awards include: Thomas Ehrlich Award for Civically Engaged Faculty, Community Engagement Professional Award, and Institutional Awards.
