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 2014, ICC supported over 13,000 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.

 

Registration closes April 15th for the 7th 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 11-15, 2015.  Dowload flyer.

Registration closes April 15, 2015.

Looking to enhance or create a service learning course? Ready to advance your community-engaged research project? These events have a reputation of creating the necessary space to foster new ideas and move a project forward.

A past attendee stated, "The IUPUI Research Academy has been very helpful to service-learning faculty members at Virginia Commonwealth University. Several of our tenure line faculty members who attended the Academy last year walked away with specific ideas for research projects that they have since begun to implement. The Academy provides a wonderful mix of both high-quality information and mentoring" - Dr. Lynn E. Pelco, Associate Vice Provost for Community Engagement, Virginia Commonwealth University.

Two new additions for this year worth noting:

  1. Graduate student scholarships - we are pleased to announce that we will offer 2 graduate students complimentary registration. This is ideal of someone working on a thesis or dissertation related to service-learning or community engagement. Or, those interested in learning about best practices with service learning. Applications for the award are due Fri., Feb. 2nd. For more information, visit our website (http://csl.iupui.edu/about/conferences/connecting.shtml).
  2. Group discount for institutions with 3 or more attendees - We have found that attending as a group is a successful way to move an initiative forward on your campus and helps to develop a network that will have a lasting impact one you return to campus. Groups of 3 or more will receive a $50 per person discount on registration.
