About the organization

Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) is a CEO-led coalition of colleges and universities that support civic engagement, service learning, and volunteerism across our state. Our work to improve community life and educate students about civic and social responsibility is critically important. Our world requires thoughtful, compassionate, knowledgeable, and engaged leaders. We need a workforce that understands the critical role of individuals in a community. Higher education is an excellent place to teach and learn civic engagement. Through partnerships with AmeriCorps, Reach Higher Montana, the Governor’s Office of Community Service, and other funding partners, MTCC offers a broad spectrum of initiatives, training, scholarships, and awards that encourage and recognize community service and enable service-learning professional development.
