10th Anniversary


Our 2016-2017 Year in Review, plus a preview of what’s up next

Now that the academic year is over, it’s time to share our year in review! Some highlights:

  • Throughout 2016, the Compact catalyzed non-partisan election engagement efforts across the network, working with the national CEEP project to support student fellows, make mini-grants, and host the NC College Voter Summit.
  • At the 2017 NC Presidents Forum, hosted by Chancellor Harold Martin and NC A&T State University, 35 college and university presidents and chancellors explored issues related to equity in higher education.
  • We honored 25 student leaders from NC campuses with a Community Impact Award.
  • The Compact convened a special event — the Social Change Forum, hosted by Duke University — to explore the higher education intersections of community engagement and social entrepreneurship.
  • Our AmeriCorps VISTA program supported 15 #ServiceYear members building capacity of K-12 education, hunger relief, and economic support projects across NC.
  • Two new members joined our network: Alamance Community College and the NC Community College System!
