Montana Campus Compact

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.

Duties

Montana State University’s (MSU) Office of Student Engagement fosters meaningful engagement opportunities that challenge, support, and empower students to be leaders on campus, in the community, and beyond. This VISTA project aims to address poverty, housing, food security, and transportation needs among MSU students. The project will seek to build capacity within the new Off-Campus Student Life program, promoting sustainable programming and initiatives. This project will focus on community empowerment by actively engaging residents of low-income communities, specifically students. The VISTA will focus on developing programs that are not only effective in the short term but also sustainable in the long run. This includes the Off-Campus Student Life program, which aims to create systems and structures that ensure the continuity and consistency of support services like housing assistance and food security for low-income students. The VISTA will also be responsible for establishing and strengthening partnerships with community partners, the City of Bozeman, and MSU’s Student Government (ASMSU). By focusing on these areas, the VISTA will help the new Off-Campus Student Life program not only address immediate needs related to poverty but also lay a strong foundation for continued and effective support in the future.
