Who We Are

Founded in 2017, Campus Compact for the Great Plains aims to advance the public purposes of colleges & universities in Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota by deepening their ability to improve community life and to educate students for civic and social responsibility.  Campus Compact for the Great Plains is the only organization in the region that works with public and private, two and four-year institutions on the democratic purposes of higher education.

Campus Compact for the Great Plains is the only organization in the region that brings together public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities around a shared commitment to the public purposes of higher education.

While college and university presidents and chancellors officially join our coalition, we are an inclusive network of people with varied positions and backgrounds who seek to advance more relational, asset-based, and change-oriented leadership; to recognize and value diverse sources of knowledge; to understand themselves and others—and to continue learning and working for positive change on the issues that matter to them, even when the work is hard.
