Kansas Campus Compact supports programs that promote service initiatives to develop students' citizenship skills, help campuses forge effective community partnerships, and provide resources and practical guidance for faculty seeking to integrate civic engagement into their teaching and research.
The Serve 2 Succeed Corps is an initiative designed to harness the power of peer mentoring and service-learning to increase student retention at all colleges in Kansas.
Each year KsCC selects 2-3 faculty from member campuses to recognize as champions for engaged teaching and research. They receive a stipend and conduct collaborative research on service-learning and engagement.
These webinars are designed to provide a variety of opportunities to learn from experts in the fields of civic engagement and service-learning from Kansas and across the nation.
In recognition of Kansas Day, KsCC provides mini-grant support for efforts by colleges and their communities to celebrate state history and serve the needs of those around us.
Kansas Campus Compact, with the support of the North Carolina Campus Compact, is proud to promote the 2011 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service program by offering $2,500 in five sub-grants to campuses creating or expanding MLK Jr. Day of Service curricular or co-curricular service-learning activities that contribute to physically, emotionally, and economically healthier families, especially among low-income Kansans.
In addition to the national Frank Newman and Thomas Ehrlich awards, KsCC is currently developing state awards to recognize the outstanding public service achievements of students, faculty, staff, and community partners in Kansas.
