Campus Compact is a national coalition of colleges and universities committed to the public purposes of higher education. As the only national higher education association dedicated solely to higher education civic and community engagement, Campus Compact enables higher education institutions to develop students’ citizenship skills and forge effective community partnerships. Our resources support senior administrators, faculty, staff, and students as they pursue community-based teaching, scholarship, and action in the service of positive change.

About the Program

The Campus Climate Action Corps Connecticut (CCAC CT) Project is a Campus Compact initiative focused on building the capacity of campuses and their community partners to affect behavioral and technical change that leads to energy efficiency and improved at-risk ecosystems for underserved households and communities.

CCAC CT Members will also implement projects in underserved communities that enhance ecosystem health and leverage local volunteers to support CCAC CT environmental stewardship activities.
