Civic Action Planning Support

Campus Compact continues to offer live training, technical assistance, and communities of practice to help you get the detailed, specialized support you need to keep your plan moving forward during the creation, implementation, and future iterations of your institution’s Civic Action Plan.

Regularly Offered Support Sessions

Our Civic Action Planning Institutes and resources continue to evolve with the changing contexts of community and higher education. Civic Action Planning Institutes will bring teams together to begin shaping a plan for institutional transformation and for aligning institutional teaching, research, and action with commitments to equity—social, democratic, and economic.

Teams can include individuals from across campus and beyond including faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community partners. We also recommend engaging leaders from across campus including faculty, staff from a variety of areas (diversity, ministry, teaching and learning, research, etc), student leaders, and community partners.

Teams will have the opportunity to consider new strategies for civic action including applying an equity lens and engaging key campus leaders and will have the opportunity to work together and receive expert consultation on their planning and/or implementation.

Advanced CAP Institutes will bring institutional teams together for shared learning about CAP implementation and planning for future direction. Key focus areas include:

  • Strategy for persistence and sustainability: How has the CAP aligned with other institutional initiatives? How has leadership and participation evolved
  • Alignment with commitments: Has a focus on equity remained central? What have been the impacts? In what ways has institutional teaching, research, and action changed to align with these values?
  • Next level work: How can we continue to go deeper? What’s been working?The offering will be informed by a pre-survey of registrants to determine final priority areas for focus. The Institutes are open to institutional teams that implemented plans and that continue to advance institutional transformation work through a CAP. The structure will be discussion-based with break-out time for individual teams.
