Mission Statement

North Carolina Campus Compact is a coalition of colleges and universities collaborating to increase campus-wide participation in community and public service. Presidents and chancellors commit their institutions to join with other schools in becoming "engaged campuses" that enhance students' sense of responsibility, citizenship, leadership and awareness of community, while reinvigorating higher education's concern for improving the quality of life in North Carolina. NC Campus Compact is a member of National Campus Compact.

Working together towards the mission
NC Campus Compact joins together to promote civic engagement in order to unite campuses, empower students, and impact NC communities. The state office works with member institutions throughout the state to promote and enhance campuses engaged with their communities and producing civically-minded graduates.
