Campus Compact has conducted an annual membership survey since 1987. The purpose of this survey is to help the organization and its member campuses track the extent of civic engagement activity in order to be able to implement ongoing improvements as well as to report outcomes to various constituencies.
This year’s numbers tell a story of continuing growth in support structures for campus engagement, leading to notable levels of engagement with students, faculty, and community partners. Where possible, comparisons with prior years have been provided to highlight areas of growth as well as those where more work is needed.1 Campuses have an ideal opportunity to use these findings not only to guide practice and communicate the value of this work, but also to bolster their own internal assessment measures.
