Campus Coordinators are the critical link for this statewide program to be effetive. Here, you should find materials to help manage a campus program for the S2S Corps from inception to member exit.
Every campus interested in serving as a host campus for the S2S Corps must submit an application. These are due by June 15th prior to enrolling any members. In addition to the signed application form, please attach the typed narrative (no more than 5 pages) addressing the questions listed and submit that to the KsCC office.
Decisions on host campuses and number of AmeriCorps Member slots will be made by the end of June. Decisions will be by the staff of Kansas Campus Compact and will be based on confidence in the capacity of the campus to adequately manage the requested size of the program, effectively recruit and retain members, and meet or exceed the primary goals of the S2S Corps to improve student retention through peer mentoring and joint co-curricular service-learning.
S2S Corps participation is restricted to only those institutions that are members of KsCC. If your campus is not a member, learn how to join in our Membership section.
Upon selection, all campuses must sign the Campus Agreement and keep a copy on file.
Identifying Campus Coordinators
The key to a smooth-running S2S program on your campus is a detail-oriented campus coordinator. S/he can have any position at the institution, but should be able to communicate regularly with the student participants to help keep them on pace to complete their service.
Every host campus must identify a single individual responsible for the performance of the S2S Corps on the campus. This individual is a critical piece of the success of the S2S Corps on the campus and program-wide. The requirements of the Campus Coordinator include:
- Attend an in-person Campus Coordinator training meeting hosted by Kansas Campus Compact
- Assist with enrollment, orientation, training, and exit of S2S Corps Members
- Schedule and attend monthly group check-in meetings with Members
- Review and approve Members’ monthly time sheets and reflections
- Submit quarterly progress reports to Kansas Campus Compact
- Serve as a resource for Members to connect with campus and community contacts for the purpose of deepening the mentoring and service activities
Kansas Campus Compact estimates that Campus Coordinators will need to spend approximately 225 hours of their time addressing S2S activities. To balance this requirement, all Campus Coordinators will be compensated with a lump-sum payment of $2,000.
A Campus Coordinator may be supported by an advisory team of individuals on a campus who represent the variety of issues connected to promoting student retention and community service.
All Campus Coordinators will be provided with a training session and travel will be reimbursed. In addition, we have provided a Campus Coordinators may download any of the following files for administration, program operations and member support.

Quarterly Progress Reports
Campus Coordinators must file "quarterly" progress reports. These are done through the time log portal at https:/www.kscampuscompact.org.
Mentee Retention Reporting
All host programs will need to report on the retention rates of mentees in the program. This will be done in aggregate for each campus and will not identify any individual. The following tool should be completed by the Campus Coordinator, with assistance from other campus officials, and submitted to KsCC by the end of September.
