welcome to Indiana Campus Compact

For over 20 years, Indiana Campus Compact (ICC) has helped member institutions mobilize students state-wide to communities in need. In 2013, ICC supported nearly 15,000 individuals through grant programs, professional development opportunities, resources, and networking. Indiana Campus Compact was formed in 1993 as a formal compact between Indiana college and university presidents to commit themselves to their communities through service. ICC is the only organization in the state that works with public, independent, and two-year institutions of higher education.

 

6th Annual Connecting Campuses with Communities

Connecting Campuses with Communities is a capacity building program for faculty and staff that is co-sponsored by Indiana Campus Compact and the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning. In the past, over 250 engaged scholars from more than 100 institutions and five countries have attended this annual event to enhance their service-learning teaching and community-based research. The event will be held on the IUPUI campus May 12-16, 2014.

Registration for this event is now CLOSED.

This year's event will start with the Service-Learning Institute (Monday, May 12th, through mid-day Wednesday, May 14th) followed by the Research Academy (mid-day Wednesday, May 14th, through Friday, May 16th).
