Campus Compact is a national coalition of more than 950 college and university presidents - representing some 5 million students - dedicated to promoting community service, civic engagement, and service-learning in higher education. This site is designed for college and university presidents, provosts, chief academic officers, and deans who wish to deepen the civic education of their students and to increase the engagement of their institutions with their local communities.

NYLC welcomes you to our new online Resource Center — a highly searchable, interactive service-learning library — at https://gsn.nylc.org/. The Resource Center draws upon more than 20 years worth of NYLC writings, including key articles, excerpts from books, research and training materials; writings by leaders in the service-learning movement; and project examples from across the country. But the Resource Center is not just a place to find materials; it's a place to contribute.

Methods in Community-based Participatory Research for Health
Edited by Barbara A. Israel DrPH, Eugenia Eng DrPH, Amy J. Schulz PhD, Edith A. Parker DrPH
Written by distinguished experts in the field, this book shows how researchers, practitioners, and community partners can work together to establish and maintain equitable partnerships using a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to increase knowledge and improve health and well-being of the communities involved.  What distinguishes CBPR from other approaches to research is the active engagement of all partners in the process. This book provides a comprehensive and thorough presentation of CBPR study designs, specific data collection and analysis methods, and innovative partnership structures and process methods. This book informs students, practitioners, researchers, and community members about methods and applications needed to conduct CBPR in the widest range of research areas, including social determinants of health, health disparities, health promotion, community interventions, disease management, health services and environmental health.

Call for Chapter Proposals: Civic Engagement and Community Service at Research Universities: Engaging Undergraduates for Social Justice, Social Change, and Responsible Citizenship

Proposal Deadline: April 10, 2015

In the Wingspread Declaration on Renewing the Civic Mission of the American Research University (Boyte & Hollander, 1999), scholars called for American research universities to renew their missions as the agents of democracy and reshape their cultures to better engage students in the work of citizenship. In our edited volume, authors respond to this call by highlighting the ways in which public research universities are undertaking this important work by developing undergraduates’ civic and democratic capacities.

In this volume, authors may address

  1. strategies to develop undergraduates’ sense of civic responsibility, engagement in social change, and abilities to work with others across differences;
  2. factors predicting undergraduates’ civic and political behaviors; or,
  3. outcomes associated with students’ civic and community involvement. We seek chapters that incorporate a variety of data sources to achieve these outcomes.

The editors of this volume are Dr. Krista M. Soria and Dr. Tania D. Mitchell (University of Minnesota). The text will be published by Palgrave Macmillan. Chapters should be no more than 6,000 words and full chapters are due July 30, 2015.

Please submit chapter proposals to Krista Soria at ksoria@umn.edu and include the following information:

  1. Overview of chapter: Include the proposed title, sources of data, and any other relevant information to set the context.  
  2. Preliminary outline: Include an outline of the proposed chapter.
  3. References: Provide selected references that you may include in the chapter.  
  4. Biography: Provide a short biography for the author(s).
