Compact came into existence in 1985 when the presidents of Brown,
Georgetown and Stanford universities, along with the president of the
Education Commission of the States, joined together to form Campus
Compact, a coalition of college and university presidents whose primary
purpose is to help students develop the values and skills of citizenship
through participation in public and community service.
