Civic Action Planning

About the Civic Action Plan

In March 2016, Campus Compact initiated a Campus Civic Action initiative to renew higher education’s commitment to preparing students for democratic citizenship, building partnerships for change, and reinvigorating higher education for the public good. As part of this initiative, nearly 450 presidents and chancellors across the country have signed the Campus Compact 30th Anniversary Action Statement, making a public commitment both to its principles and to developing a plan to put those principles into action (learn more about signing the statement). Both the national and regional Campus Compact organizations have made available guidance for member campuses engaged in designing campus action plans. In addition to training events, this guidance includes resources to provide a shared foundation for approaching civic action planning while encouraging creativity, flexibility, and boldness. This included our Civic Action Planning Institute in October 2016 co-sponsored by Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island Campus Compacts.
