Campus Compact's Annual Membership Survey is now available online. Your participation in this
national survey is very important. Without enough Vermont responses, VCC does not receive state
specific statistics. Conducted each year since 1986, the survey is the most comprehensive and widely
distributed review of service, service-learning, and civic engagement in higher education. Through this
instrument, we are able to calculate student and faculty involvement, to understand institutional
support/culture for this work, to learn about how civic engagement activities are structured on campuses,
and to receive valuable feedback about Campus Compact member services. Results allow campuses to
compare their progress with state and national trends and help all of us better articulate our case to
elected officials, funders, and the media. The deadline for completion of the survey is December 4,
2009. For best results, download the PDF version to review the entire survey and then complete the
survey online. You can view last year's results at http://www.compact.org/about/statistics/.
