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.
