Montana Campus Compact

About the organization

Established in 1993, Montana Campus Compact aims to integrate civic work and learning into the curriculum and operations of its diverse network of colleges and universities, so students graduate with the determination and capacity to contribute to the public good throughout their lives—and higher education institutions are fully engaged with their communities, working together to educate citizens, solve problems, and build a strong democracy.

Our national office is in Boston, MA, with state and regional Campus Compacts providing place-based support for member institutions located throughout the country. As the only national higher education association dedicated solely to campus-based civic engagement, Campus Compact enables campuses to develop students’ citizenship skills and forge effective community partnerships. Our resources support administrators, faculty, staff, and students as they pursue community-based teaching, scholarship, and action in the service of public good.
