As colleges and universities deepen their commitment to developing their students as full participants in their communities and our democracy, they need to capture student civic learning outcomes. This information can help institutions improve their curricular and co-curricular programs while answering questions posed by accreditors, public higher education authorities, and the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement.
To meet this growing need, Campus Compact has partnered with Liaison International to build Compact2Learn, an online tool that enables campuses to capture student civic and community participation and learning. Liaison brings to the partnership thirty years of developing and supporting technologies to serve higher education, while Campus Compact brings broad experience in facilitating and assessing community-based learning.
Through Compact2Learn, colleges and universities can capture information in ways that are useful to students, to the institution, and to the broader effort to advance the public purposes of higher education.
