California Campus Compact builds the collective commitment and capacity of colleges, universities and communities to advance civic and community engagement for a healthy, just and democratic society.
In 2023, California colleges, universities and communities are contributing to a healthy, just and democratic society through ongoing dialogue and collaboration, with a strong shared commitment to the development of socially responsible individuals and institutions.
In 2017, CACC updated the Strategic Plan, and it was approved by the CACC Executive Board on March 2, 2018.
In 2013, California Campus Compact (CACC) designed and implemented an intentional strategic planning process. Building on their existing strategic plan, CACC chose to continue to focus on their vision, mission and strategic directions, which were crafted in 2007, as each clearly articulate relevant and intentional aspirations for CACC. A small group of diverse stakeholders including member campuses, students, program participants, campus presidents, community partners and non-member campuses provided extensive feedback in face-to-face convenings. A later draft and a survey were broadly distributed to CACC’s constituents by email and online. Deliberations by CACC’s staff and Executive Board were informed by the feedback collected and enabled CACC to focus their goals on the civic engagement fields’ current issues and needs across California. In total, more than 100 stakeholders provided direct input and feedback as this strategic plan was developed. The CACC Executive Board officially approved the plan on November 14, 2013.
After CACC transitions into an independent organization in July of 2022, we will begin the strategic planning process again, continuing the important work of educating students for lives of public engagement and supporting greater access and opportunity for all.
“There is no more important organization in California than California Campus Compact when it comes to inspiring, encouraging and supporting higher education’s public service role in California. California Campus Compact has played a key role in helping the University of San Francisco expand and highlight our service-learning and civic engagement work.”

“Since its founding more than 20 years ago, California Campus Compact has been a remarkable catalyst and resource in helping build engaged campuses throughout California. California Campus Compact’s support of Cal Poly-Pomona’s service-learning and civic engagement initiatives has been extremely valuable to us.”
