I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. --Edmund Evertt Hale

Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. 
--Martin Luther King Jr.

North Carolina Campus Compact builds the capacity of colleges and universities to produce civically-engaged graduates and strengthen communities.
Introduction

Since 2002, presidents and chancellors have been able to declare their commitment to the civic mission of higher education by joining North Carolina Campus Compact. They join a national Compact created in 1985 by the presidents of Brown, Georgetown and Stanford Universities and the president of the Education Commission of the States. Concerned that the media was portraying college students as materialistic and self-absorbed, these leaders raised the profile of campuses promoting and encouraging student community involvement. Campus Compact now has 1,200 presidents and chancellors leading engagement with their communities. North Carolina’s is the 26th of 34 state Compacts that have formed.

North Carolina Campus Volunteers (NCCV) laid the foundation for NC Campus Compact.  Formed in 1993, this coalition of students and staff saw a need to unify campus volunteerism across the state. Each year they hosted a Student Conference and Service Learning Institute. NCCV merged with NC Campus Compact when it formed in 2002, and the Compact has continued to host the yearly conferences.

Elon University president Leo M. Lambert served as the Executive Board Chair until 2008 and hosts the NC Campus Compact office on Elon’s campus. Chancellor Ken Peacock at Appalachian State University has been board chair since 2008.  John H. Barnhill was the founding Executive Director, followed by Dr. Lisa Keyne in 2006.

Presidents and Chancellors that join the Compact commit their institutions to becoming “engaged campuses.”  The only coalition that brings together the diverse collection of North Carolina colleges and universities around a common commitment to higher education’s civic purposes, North Carolina Campus Compact is a powerful ally in making the case for civic engagement, public service and campus-community partnerships – and for sustaining the momentum for higher education’s public service role in North Carolina.
