1: Have the President Sign the Membership Form
The Campus Compact movement was started in 1985 by the presidents of Stanford, Georgetown, and Brown Universities to promote the public purposes of postsecondary education. The founding presidents knew that the commitment of the college or university president was critical in providing the leadership for this movement on individual campuses. Thus, the Campus Compact is a membership organization of college and university presidents and it is the president who joins on behalf of the institution.
To become a member of KyCC, the president must sign the attached membership form.

2: Pay Membership Fees
Campuses pay an annual membership fee (July 1 to June 30) based on the full-time equivalent undergraduate enrollment at their institution. These fees, along with funds received from other sources, allow the Kentucky Campus Compact to:
- Provide member institutions with training, technical assistance and financial support
- Build statewide support for collegiate service-learning and civic engagement
- Promote public awareness of individual campus service and civic engagement activities
- Organize and support regional and statewide events and gatherings
- Promote public awareness of legislative issues related to service and civic engagement
To get an invoice indicating how much your dues would be, please email: email@example.com.
Your KyCC membership dues includes a fee for becoming a member of the national Campus Compact, which has a variety of resources that you may access. You will find many resources on the website. In addition, there is a national staff that focuses on research, effective practices, and national funding. You will receive a welcome packet from the national office when you join KyCC.
3: Complete the Staff Liaison Form
When you join KyCC, we ask you to fill out a staff liaison form. The purpose of collecting this contact information is to facilitate communication between KyCC, the National Campus Compact, and your institution. The KyCC Advisory Board member will be the primary point of contact and will be asked to attend two meetings each year.
