Universities Fighting World Hunger
Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH) represents a campus best practice in international programming and sustainable human development. It creates a learning environment where intellectual discovery and social responsibility converge in pursuit of a sustainable world – a world that protects our natural environment and enhances human health and well-being for present and future generations.
In partnership with the UN World Food Programme, Universities Fighting World Hunger is the catalyst mobilizing universities across the nation and around the globe to make fighting hunger a core value of higher education institutions worldwide with a mission to create an academic hunger model that is suitable for replication or adaptation by universities in the US and abroad.
Kansas Campus Compact
Kansas Campus Compact (KsCC) promotes service-learning and civic engagement efforts at institutions of higher education. We provide training, resources, and support to efforts to deepen the ways in which students, faculty, staff, and administrators learn and teach in collaboration with community and civic organizations. We help empower the movement to educate Kansans to better meet the emerging needs of a civic life.
We belong to Campus Compact, a national coalition of over 1,100 colleges and universities. Founded in 1985, Compact set its sights on erasing the media-born stereotype of the self-absorbed, materialistic college student. Its founders saw students with hearts for their communities and hands to help them, and vowed to move powerfully—both on their behalf, and the behalf of the communities of which they are a part—by aiding in the process.
KsCC is headquartered in Manhattan, Kansas and consists of 13 member institutions, including public and private colleges as well as 2-year and 4-year institutions.
