Missouri Campus Compact (MOCC) is a membership association of college and university presidents and chancellors established to advance community engagement within higher education and strengthen partnerships between post-secondary institutions and the communities they serve.


MOCC seeks to create and expand engagement through academic and co-curricular programs, to advocate for public policies that encourage and support community engagement, and to enhance the commitment to higher education’s civic mission.

There are currently 40 member institutions, all committed to enhancing students’ responsibility, citizenship and awareness of the community while reinvigorating higher education’s concern for improving the quality of life in society. MOCC is one of 34 state compacts in a national network. At the national level, Campus Compact is a coalition of more than 1,100 college and university presidents, representing more than 6 million students.
