Pathways of Public Service and Civic Engagement – Sep 13

Posted by Campus Compact on August 23, 2022

Campus Compact and the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford University has announced a new partnership to expand the reach of the Pathways of Public Service and Civic Engagement (“Pathways”) and support its associated Working Group. This academic year, the entities will co-facilitate and support the Working Group, a collaborative effort undertaken by 88 institutions and organizations across the U.S. and abroad to implement, analyze, use, and refine the Pathways framework and survey.

Beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year, Campus Compact will assume fiscal and programmatic management and work in partnership with Working Group members to identify rotating leadership co-chairs. Furthermore, Campus Compact is now using the Pathways as a centerpiece of the Newman Civic Fellowship experience and curriculum design.

The Pathways framework and survey aim to advance our understanding of students’ interests and predispositions regarding approaches to social change. The framework and survey were developed at the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford University and piloted in 2014. Since then, Working Group members, Campus Compact, and other organizations have helped to refine the survey. In its current form, the survey helps improve the quality of student programming, understand the shifting needs and desires of students over time, and implement a common framework and language that can be used across the field of higher education civic and community engagement.

The Working Group accepts new members on a rolling basis. Colleges and universities do not need to be Campus Compact members to participate in the Working Group. To participate, institutions must identify a primary liaison who will administer the survey on their campus and must commit to participating in periodic meetings with other Working Group members. To join the Working Group, please contact Clayton Hurd, Campus Compact director of professional development and engaged scholarship, at
