Campus Compact: 2020 in Review

Posted by Campus Compact on December 22, 2020

Despite a challenging year, we’ve come together as a coalition to accomplish so much. Throughout the rapid shifts caused by COVID-19, we’ve continued to move resolutely forward in pursuit of a more just and equal future. Thank you for your perseverance and dedication. As we look ahead to 2021, we remain motivated and inspired by hope for a better tomorrow.

Here are some of our 2020 accomplishments and resources:

Campus Compact announced the first ever Community Engagement Professional and Institutional winners of the Impact Awards. Learn about the winners.
