Leadership Award for Campus and Community Engagement

Posted by on September 29, 2008

Campus Compact has created the Leadership Award for Campus and Community Engagement to highlight the critical and valuable role of the community engagement professional in higher education. These dedicated individuals form a vital link between the community and campus, they are central to realizing the vision of the engaged campus, and integral in the education and development of students. The tremendous growth of the field is due in large part to the dedication and hard work of the community engagement professional.  This award is for staff members on Campus Compact member campuses; please see our other awards for faculty and students.

This award honors an individual whose work embodies the vision and value of the engaged campus. The objective of this award is to recognize the work of a community engagement professional who advances her/his campus’s civic vision and the field by creating and/or coordinating high-quality campus and community engagement initiatives, contributing significantly to the development and sustainability of strong, reciprocal partnerships between higher education and communities, and fostering a deep culture of engagement on their campus.

The deadline for submission of applications is October 17, 2008.


To be eligible for this award, an individual must be a full- or part-time staff member at a Campus Compact member campus in the 2007-2008 academic year.  Any individual whose work meets the selection criteria may be considered regardless of position, level, or title. An applicant’s impact will be weighted more heavily over her/his years of service.
