April 25 webinar to explore data and research from 2012 Grad Nation report

The national high school graduation rate increased from 72.6 percent in 2002 to 75.5 percent in 2009, according to the 2012 update to the Building a Grad Nation report from Civic Enterprises, the Everyone Graduates Center, America’s Promise Alliance, and the Alliance for Excellent Education. On April 25 from 2-3pm ET, report authors Robert Balfanz of the Everyone Graduates Center and John Bridgeland of Civic Enterprises will conduct an in-depth webinar on the data and research from the report. more

Engaged Graduate Programs

Campus Compact recognizes that many of our members nationally include highly engaged graduate programs and graduate-only campuses.  We also recognize the need to provide more programming that benefits the specific needs surrounding graduate-level engagement.

With that in mind, we are exploring ways to provide more services and engagement opportunities to those from graduate programs and graduate-only colleges across the nation. One possibility we are discussing is a national network of engaged graduate programs/graduate-only institutions, which would allow for meaningful networking with colleagues outside state borders around issues specific to graduate-level engagement.

Your state Campus Compact office shared your information with this group to be included in graduate efforts.  We are hosting calls which will allow these members from graduate programs to discuss their needs, how Campus Compact can better serve them, and if a network is desired/what it might offer.  If you are interested, please sign up for a call using the following survey:


Thank you and we cannot wait to work with you to build stronger graduate programming and services.

Thank you,

Franchesca Nestor (WV Campus Compact), Elaine Ikeda (California Campus Compact), Cheryl Whitney Lower (Vermont Campus Compact), Julie Plaut (Minnesota Campus Compact), and Amanda Wittman (national Campus Compact)


Also, don’t forget about this upcoming opportunity!
