Greetings, Partners and Friends:
We are delighted to unveil the 2015-2020 Indiana Campus Compact Strategic Plan: INCREASING INDIANA HIGHER EDUCATION'S COLLECTIVE IMPACT ON COMMUNITIES.
This plan is a culmination of nearly a year of interviews and focus groups with faculty, staff and students from partner campuses; leaders from the field; partner organizations; and the Indiana Campus Compact staff and Board of Directors. We worked with consultant Dr. Stephen Hundley who helped us flesh out the plan and craft it into the goals and strategies that will guide our work over the next five years.
The plan keeps us rooted in our history, but prepares us for life in a 21st century society. As our revised mission suggests, we will work as a partnership of campuses throughout the state of Indiana to advocate, implement, and improve service engagement so that our students graduate as well-informed, engaged, and productive members of society who are fully enabled to provide leadership and service that advances the public good in their communities—well beyond 2020.
Please take the time to review this plan, and let us know how we can continue to support your contributions to this unique partnership.
In service –
Mark A. Heckler, Ph.D.
President, Valparaiso University
Chair, Indiana Campus Compact Board of Directors
J.R. Jamison, M.A.Ed.
Executive Director, Indiana Campus Compact
