Campus Compact Annual Member Survey is Open

All Campus Compact member campuses should have received a notice from the national office that the annual survey is now open. The email was sent to community service/service-learning directors for whom we have contact information. For Missouri members, a notice was also sent to all of our key contacts. I encourage all of our campuses to complete this survey. It is of vital importance to the work that we do as a statewide and national network. This survey is the most comprehensive and longest running data source for higher education civic engagement. For more information and to complete the survey, please see the survey website at: http://www.compact.org/about/statistics/annual-membership-survey/.

Please note that the survey should only be completed once by each institution. It will take approximately an hour to complete and you are required to complete it all at once. Make sure to go through the draft located on the website in order to prepare your responses ahead of time. THE DEADLINE FOR COMPLETION IS DECEMBER 12.

New Resources Webpage

This site is full of links to examples, program models, professional development materials, and much more. Please remember that this will always be a work in progress. If you find sections to be lacking or find a great resource you would like us to post, please let us know. We will test out the site this year and may re-tool it later based on user feedback
