Campus Compact of Oregon convenes and supports the work of educational institutions individually and collectively to improve their practice around institutional equity, collaborative learning, and community engagement to respond effectively to a racially diverse and changing Oregon.
Bottom Line for Portland
Students don’t need to be school-ready, schools need to be student-ready! Schools should be spaces of belonging for students of color. Each year, we provide over 2,000 students with academic support, college access coaching, and community-engaged learning experiences, and offer racial equity training for 250-plus educational professionals.
“Campus Compact’s equity training facilitated conversations that could have been challenging in such a way that people didn’t get defensive. From the trainings, there was fertile ground, momentum and enough people who now pause to think and say, ‘Wait. How can we do this differently?’” —Community college training participant
