Welcome Jordan Washington!
We are happy to announce the arrival of a new Communications VISTA to the Campus Compact Illinois office. Jordan Washington, a graduate of Illinois College, will be taking over the role from Adrienne Beer. During her service year, she will play a vital role in increasing awareness of the impact our member campuses have on their communities through civic programming.
Pre-college and during college, Jordan had developed strong writing skills and even became her school newspaper’s Opinions Editor. She has always had a strong interest in writing, especially about current events and other community happenings. Through her writings, she always hopes that she’ll make an impact.
“I’ve always known that words are powerful and they can be very impactful when focusing on certain facets of life. Being able to use my words to make an impact in this world is important to me and hopefully, I can utilize that skill set to highlight to very important work Campus Compact does.”
– Jordan Washington’ s Mission Statement
At ILCC, Jordan’s impact will be made by fostering greater collaboration between campus and community. As the Communications VISTA, she will carry on the work of creating a strong culture of reciprocal storytelling, in which both campus and community benefit from the recognition of their civic contributions.
