LEAD California 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 2022-23 we will undergo a year-long Strategic Planning process.  More information to come.

“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.”

Stephen A. Privett, S.J., Former President
University of San Francisco

“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.”
