Civic Action Plan


"Civic Action Plan development is an opportunity for all campuses to maximize the impact of engagement for students, communities, and our shared world. We encourage all colleges and universities to move forward from your own starting point. We hope all institutions will learn from effective practices of other and that at least some institutions will feel motivated and prepared to break new ground.
Plans should emphasize sustainable change, primarily through building lasting capacity and changing systems, policies, and culture. Planning encourages thinking less about adding new programs and more about changing teaching, research, and all forms of ongoing institutional action so that everything is designed toward advancing the public good."
Eastern is a member of Campus Compact, a coalition of more than 1,000 colleges committed to civic engagement.
