Forty-one of Connecticut’s higher education presidents and executives, as well as panelists representing government, business, the Arts, and community-based organizations, were convened by Connecticut Campus Compact to hear evidence about and discuss ways in which the state’s civic and economic health might be bolstered by a collective approach. What emerged was a call to action. Accepting the vital role of campuses across Connecticut to act as the fulcrum for strong civic networks, leaders in the room committed to a series of measures that, ultimately, will aim to establish the first Connecticut Institute for Civic and Economic Health. The series is as follows:

  1.  To identify model higher education public work programs
  2.  To demonstrate the importance and benefits of campus engagement
  3.  To bring together multiple stakeholders in a retreat
  4.  To establish the Connecticut Institute for Civic and Economic Health
