Initiatives

Ohio Campus Compact offers a variety of programs focused on building tomorrow’s leaders, including:

AmeriCorps Student Resource Centers
Ohio Campus Compact (OCC) has been selected by ServeOhio, Ohio’s commission on service and volunteerism, to sponsor AmeriCorps members at higher education member institutions throughout Ohio to develop a Student Resource Center program. In support of the mission of Ohio Campus Compact, the AmeriCorps Student Resource Center Coordinators will support the development and growth of the Student Resource Centers, an Ohio Campus Compact initiative, which is designed to support campuses in identifying and providing much-needed resources to students who experience barriers to their academic success. 

Pay it Forward
The Pay it Forward student philanthropy program is developing a new generation of philanthropists through an innovative course-based service-learning model that engages Ohio college students in hands-on philanthropy, grant-making, and volunteer service while providing community nonprofits with much needed assistance.

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP)
CEEP is a partner project that helps administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections. Drawing in stakeholders throughout our partner campuses, we combine our powerful resources with personalized coaching, guiding schools on how to use our resources and navigate students through ever-changing barriers to voting. Working with us, schools help their students to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate confusing voting laws, and turn out at the polls.

Propel Ohio Project Grants
Propel Ohio is a leadership program that promotes civic engagement and inspires undergraduate students to grow into civic leaders in Ohio and support actively engaged students around issues that affect your schools, your community, and your state. The purpose of the Propel Ohio Grant program is to mobilize college students to further their engagement. Propel Ohio has secured funding to offer limited competitive grants of up to $500 for your campus activities and events in 2020. The 2020 grant cycle is closed.
