Mission Statement

Campus Compact of the Mountain West is a membership organization of college and university presidents devoted to promoting civic learning. CCMW is part of a national coalition of more than 1100 colleges and universities who are passionately committed to the value service learning and civic engagement brings to higher education and the community. We believe it is one of the most powerful tools to prepare students to be active, committed, and informed leaders and citizens

Description

The SECond Mission AmeriCorps VISTA program employs best practices identified by the Departments of Veterans Affairs, Defense, Labor, and Education to support veterans’ access to and success in higher education that are currently not offered (or are in the inchoate stages of development) at partner campuses and organizations. These practices include: 1) Collaborating with local communities and organizations, including government agencies, to align and coordinate various services for veterans. 2) Creating a culture of trust and connectedness on campuses through the development of peer-to-peer mentoring programs and support groups. 3) Creating a uniform set of data tools to collect and track information on student veterans, including demographics, retention, and degree completion. 4) Providing comprehensive professional development for faculty and staff.
