welcome to Indiana Campus Compact

For 20 years, Indiana Campus Compact (ICC) has helped member institutions mobilize students state-wide to communities in need. ICC advances the public purpose of colleges and universities by deepening their ability to improve community life and educate students for civic and social responsibility. This work is accomplished at many levels by engaging faculty, staff, students, university administrators, and community partners in this work. In 2012, ICC supported nearly 60,000 individuals through grant programs, professional development opportunities, resources, and networking.
