The New York Campus Compact (NYCC) is an association of college and university presidents and their campuses committed to promoting active citizenship as an aim of higher education. The NYCC provides statewide leadership in advocating for, supporting, and increasing student involvement in academic and co-curricular based public service, in order to strengthen the capacity of member institutions to serve society; to enhance student learning; and to develop in individual students the knowledge, values, skills, and habits of civic responsibility and democratic participation.
There are currently 60 NYCC member colleges and universities. The NYCC Executive Committee is comprised of ten college presidents from around the state. The NYCC Advisory Committee, the working group of the Executive Committee, is comprised of faculty and staff from around the state; and Cynthia Smith, Rensselaer Assistant Dean of Students, serves on the NYCC Advisory Committee.
President Shirley Ann Jackson is a member of the National Campus Compact Board of Directors. There are currently 33 state affiliates, including NYCC to the National Campus Compact. Campus Compact advances the public purposes of colleges and universities by deepening their ability to improve community life and to educate students for civic and social responsibility. Campus Compact envisions colleges and universities as vital agents and architects of a diverse democracy, committed to educating students for responsible citizenship in ways that both deepen their learning and improve the quality of community life. We challenge all of higher education to make civic and community engagement an institutional priority.
Programs of interest to the Rensselaer Community, supported by New York Campus Compact, including scholarship and award information, will be posted on this web site regularly. For more information, call 276-6266, or send an email.
