Description  | Table of Contents  | Sample Chapter


This small volume reflects on three years of success in mobilizing students at the campus, state, and national levels during Campus Compact's Raise Your Voice (RYV) campaign. Written by five RYV student leaders, Lessons Learned includes a frank discussion of barriers to engagement and how to overcome them, including ways to collaborate, cut through bureaucracy, and mobilize students; a new working definition of civic engagement that incorporates voice, action, and reflection; a look at the role of higher education in fostering civic engagement and preparing students for public life; and ideas for how to begin the process of building an active, civically engaged campus.

By Tara Germond, Ellen Love, Liz Moran, Sherita Moses, and Stephanie Raill.

Note: The material in this volume makes up the first chapter of Raise Your Voice: A Student Guide to Making Positive Social Change.

Campus Compact Has Brought Back Three Popular Out-of-Print Titles

When we found that three of our most popular titles were out of print, yet people were still asking for them, we undertook a new project to digitally reprint them. Now they are available here in our Book Store for administrators, faculty, and students alike. Please let us know what other books you would like to have reprinted and we will consider making those available as well. Contact: Emily Wood, Director of Communications,
