Hanover College to Join Indiana Campus Compact
Will be 36th campus to be part of state-wide partnership
J.R. Jamison, Executive Director of Indiana Campus Compact, announced today that the Indiana Campus Compact Board of Directors has unanimously approved Hanover College’s partnership in the Compact effective July 1, 2016. Jamison said, “We are delighted that Hanover College is joining the Compact this summer and look forward to having their voice represented at the table. Hanover has a strong tradition of service and experiential learning opportunities, and I know they will be outstanding contributors to our partnership among Hoosier institutions of higher education as we continue to prepare college students to advance the public good in—and with—communities.”
Hanover College was founded in 1827 and is located on 620 acres just outside of historic Madison, Indiana. With just over 1100 students, 32 majors offered in the liberal arts, and 11:1 ratio of students to faculty, the atmosphere is one of deep thought and dedication to service. Their website says, “Our students start companies, create social movements, and examine wildlife in the wild – and that’s just while they’re here.”
“Hanover is honored to be a part of Indiana Campus Compact,” said President Lake Lambert. “This partnership integrates community service with academic instruction so that each strengthens the other. It also prepares our students for a life that includes service to others.”
Indiana Campus Compact invests in its partner campuses through training, grants, and the professional network it provides for college and university faculty, staff, and students. Through that support, Indiana campuses partner with community agencies to make a difference for tens of thousands of community members each year. Because of their investment in the organization, Hanover College will extend its reach into the community and deepen students’ ability to provide leadership and service that advances the public good in southern Indiana and beyond.
