Eastern Region Campus Compact (ERCC) Conference Mission:

Campus Compact believes that higher education is instrumental to creating just, inclusive, sustainable democracy.  In support of that vision, the Eastern Region Campus Compact (ERCC) Conference is a convening of campus executives, scholars, practitioners, students, and community partners, committed to enhancing our democratic society through community and civic engagement.  ERCC provides a venue for thinking critically about the issues, trends, and challenges in our shared work and for building stronger networks among colleagues.

ERCC aims to build personal, institutional, and field-level capacity to foster change on- and off-campus; enhance community-engaged teaching, scholarship, and service; and ultimately transform our students, institutions, and communities. Each ERCC Conference will highlight innovative theories and practices that are advancing the field of higher education community engagement showcasing:

  • Replicable practices that better prepare college students for success in their professional and civic lives;
  • Pragmatic strategies to develop meaningful, reciprocal community partnerships that transform communities and the academy;
  • Approaches to  place-based, issue-driven faculty/student engaged scholarship, learning, and service, and
  • Methods for assessing and understanding the impact of our community engagement work.
