In October 2016, Southern New England Campus Compact hosted a Civic Action Planning Institute for more than 50 campus leaders from across the region. Sponsored by Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island Campus Compacts, the institute offered insight and hands-on training for efforts to implement a broad-based campus civic action plan.
MACC has made available a set of Civic Action Planning Resources that were shared during the institute. This new web guide adds to MACC’s robust resources with links to Campus Compact’s civic action planning guide, a civic action plan template, and presentations from the institute. Presentations covered a range of topics, including assessing community impact, realizing place-based strategies, and building partnerships that challenge inequality.
The new section also includes links to resources such as Campus Compact’s 30th Anniversary Civic Action Statement, which serves as the foundation for campus action. In addition, members will find an evolving set of knowledge hubs that offer starting points for campus planning teams to learn more about an aspect of engagement work.
MACC will continue to share additional civic action planning resources as they become available.
