John J. DeGioia Board Chair, Campus Compact President, Georgetown University Maureen F. Curley President, Campus Compact A SEASON OF SERVICE | 1 2005–2006 has been a year of milestones for Campus Compact. We celebrated the 20th anniversary of our founding as the first higher education association dedicated to advancing civic and community engagement. We surpassed the 1,000-member mark for the first time in that 20-year history. We saw the annual value of service performed by students at our member schools surpass $5 billion. And we brought in a new national President to guide the organization into its third decade. Some things have not changed in the 20 years since Campus Compact began. We remain the only national organization focused solely on promoting campus engagement. Our research, resources, training, advocacy, and initiatives are widely recog- nized as essential to advancing the field. Our member Presidents—and their students, faculty members, administrators, and community service staff—are more dedicated than ever to promoting civic ideals. How do we know we are making a tangible impact? Our work, and the work of our member campuses, is increasingly recog- nized by media, government, business, foundation, and commu- nity leaders. Regional accreditation boards are incorporating civic engagement into their criteria. Ranking bodies such as The Princeton Review now include community work in their campus assessments. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has created a new Community Engagement classifica- tion. The federal government has initiated the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. All of these develop- ments reflect the outstanding work of our member campuses; all spring from initiatives in which Campus Compact has played a key role. The impact on communities has been equally transformative.
