Campus Compact Illinois (CCI) gathers resources pertaining to higher education, civic responsibility, community engagement, and everything in between. Resources are selected monthly based on current trends, topics, and interests. The goal of the CCI resource round-up is to encourage members to have thoughtful dialogue around relevant issues in the field and to offer a place to learn more about the concepts surrounding our mission.
For the upcoming 2020 census, we created our own college fellowship toolkit designed to inform students about the census, how to engage their campus, and how to go into their local communities to stress the importance of everyone being counted.
