At Roger Williams University, we believe the college experience should encompass a lot more than classroom study and on-campus activities. In fact, engaging in the local community can play a major role in helping students to create post-graduation paths. Service to the community begins from the time students arrive on campus with Community Connections, RWU's largest day of service, which sends more than 1,500 students, faculty and staff members to 80+ locations around the state and the region. From that point forward, myriad service opportunities throughout the year mean endless chances for students to connect and serve the communities in which they live.
Campus Compact is a coalition of nearly 1,100 college and university presidents — representing some 6 million students — who are committed to fulfilling the public purposes of higher education. As the only national association dedicated to this mission, Campus Compact is a leader in building civic engagement into campus and academic life.
