About Maryland-DC Campus Compact
"I am a strong supporter of the Maryland Campus Compact because it speaks to communities both local and global. I am pleased that Maryland's outstanding two- and four-year colleges and universities are committed to civic engagement. They are devoted to social consciousness and providing service learning. This is consistent with Governor O'Malley's vision of building and shoring up our communities as One Maryland. We will be a better society because of the good work the Compact is doing not just in Maryland, but throughout the United States."
-James E. Lyons, Sr., Maryland Secretary of Higher Education
Established in 2008, as the Maryland Campus Compact, the newly formed Maryland-DC Campus Compact is a region-wide higher education association comprised of 31 two- and four-year public and private colleges and universities. Member institutions are committed to bringing the resources of the academy to bear on community issues, both locally and globally, through sustainable partnerships with their communities. MDCCC is a state office of the national Campus Compact, a coalition of nearly 1,100 college and university presidents, representing some 6 million students.
The Maryland-DC Campus Compact is a non-profit membership organization supported through a combination of institutional dues, federal and private grants, and in-kind contributions.
The MDCCC office is housed by Hood College in Frederick, Maryland.
