COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College formally joined on Monday, June 14, a national effort to promote civic and social responsibility in U.S. higher education.

Lindsey Wilson College joined Kentucky's Campus Compact coalition. The Kentucky Campus Compact is part of a national organization of more than 1,100 colleges and universities whose presidents are committed to fulfilling the civic purposes of higher education.

Campus Compact schools promote public- and community-service skills that develop students' citizenship skills; help campuses forge community partnerships; and provide resources and training for faculty seeking to integrate civic and community-based learning into the curriculum.

Lindsey Wilson Vice President for Academic Affairs Bettie Starr said she looks forward to the many opportunities being a Campus Compact school will provide LWC students and faculty.

"We have a lot to gain through Campus Compact and with working with the other colleges who are part of the coalition," Starr said. "There are opportunities for grants and scholarships for our students and federal money set aside for us to use if we do things that promote the mission of Campus Compact."
