About

Welcome to South Carolina Campus Compact!

SCCC is a coalition of 16 South Carolina colleges and universities working together to promote and develop the civic purposes of higher education. SCCC improves the ability of higher education institutions to partner with their communities to collectively impact community needs and provide real world learning for college students. Members of SCCC collaborate to share and seek resources and best practices, mobilizing students, faculty, and staff toward this end.

SCCC member campuses represent the full spectrum of higher education institutions, public and private, two-year, four-year, and research universities, and partner with both urban and rural communities across the state to impact community needs. Visit the websites of our member institutions to see the many ways they are developing informed and actively engaged students.

Our mission, to provide, promote, evaluate, and sustain civic-engagement, service-learning, and community-service initiatives that provide South Carolina college students with the skills needed to be active, engaged citizens in their local communities, the state, the nation, and the world, guides the benefits that we offer our members. SCCC supports the various civic engagement programs and initiatives of our member institutions by providing statewide professional development events and discounts at national events through the national Campus Compact, by providing information on current trends and funding opportunities to further grow and sustain impactful programming, by assisting with the marketing of campus events, partnerships and successes through monthly and quarterly publications, by serving as a conduit in the development of mutually beneficial partnerships on a state and national level, and by recognizing those who are making exceptional impact in the area of service through our statewide award program.

For more information on the benefits of membership, please visit our “become a member” page or contact the SCCC office directly (sccc {at} winthrop(.)edu). SCCC hopes to continue to build our network of colleges and universities across the state so that as a united front, we can make positive and sustainable impact throughout South Carolina. Join us!
