COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College
formally joined on Monday, June 14, a national effort to promote
civic and social responsibility in U.S. higher education.
Lindsey Wilson College joined Kentucky's Campus Compact
coalition. The Kentucky Campus Compact is part of a national
organization of more than 1,100 colleges and universities whose
presidents are committed to fulfilling the civic purposes of higher
Campus Compact schools promote public- and community-service
skills that develop students' citizenship skills; help campuses
forge community partnerships; and provide resources and training
for faculty seeking to integrate civic and community-based learning
into the curriculum.
Lindsey Wilson Vice President for Academic Affairs Bettie Starr said she looks forward to the
many opportunities being a Campus Compact school will provide LWC
students and faculty.
"We have a lot to gain through Campus Compact and with working
with the other colleges who are part of the coalition," Starr said.
"There are opportunities for grants and scholarships for our
students and federal money set aside for us to use if we do things
that promote the mission of Campus Compact."
