Iowa Campus Compact today announced the recipients of the 2016 MLK Day of Service Community Partnership Project mini-grant funds. Nearly $85,000 will fund higher education community projects fighting hunger and serving veterans. Projects will be coordinated by 62 Campus Compact member colleges and universities in 25 states. The grant is supported by federal funds from the Corporation for National and Community Service. Grant funds will leverage more than $300,000 in local and state funding for project on and around MLK Day of Service, January 18, 2016.

"Campus Compact member institutions across the country have a strong history of honoring the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. through service in their communities," said Emily Shields, Iowa Campus Compact Executive Director. "These funds will create even more opportunities for colleges and universities to build new partnerships and strengthen existing ones."

Grantees plan to leverage nearly 20,000 volunteers in support of those projects. These volunteers will support the packaging, sorting and collecting of more than 130,000 pounds of food and the provision of services to nearly 4,000 veterans. Funds will be distributed in partnership with four Campus Compact affiliates: Campus Compact of the Mountain West, Campus Compact NY, North Carolina Campus Compact, and Wisconsin Campus Compact.

SPOTLIGHT ON ENGAGEMENT

Here at CCMW we are tasked with “leading the evolution of the engaged campus,” but what does that mean? What better way to tell the story of engagement than by looking at an example of an engaged student. We would like to introduce you to Melissa Tilleman, a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming (UW), to help tell the story of how CCMW supports a campus in creating opportunities to produce engaged students.

Behold the power of service.
