Utah Campus Compact Request for Additional Legislative Funds Clears First Hurdle
Many thanks to Senator Ann Milner for sponsoring a $30,000 request for additional on-going legislative funds to support the staffing of Utah Campus Compact. At the close of the Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee last Friday, the request was included in the prioritized list the Subcommittee forwarded to the Executive Appropriations Committee
. Feel free to contact any Legislators on that Committee, this week, to lend your support to our request.
Snow College and University of Utah welcome new Community Engagement Administrators
Utah Campus Compact is pleased to welcome Mitch Jenkins and BobbiJo Kanter into our network of professionals.
Mitch Jenkins enters the part-time role of Service and Community-Oriented Learning Coordinator with years of previous service at Snow College as an instructor and advisor. He will work with the Service-Learning Faculty Committee as well as other community-oriented initiatives. Mitch’s knowledge of the Ephraim and Snow College communities are great assets that have already begun yielding results that will build the capacity of the college to serve community needs.
BobbiJo Kanter joins the Bennion Center as the Associate Director for Student Programs with more than a decade of executive management experience, having served most recently as the director of program services for Special Olympics Utah. In that role, she has served as a community partner with Bennion Center students and understands the nuances, benefits, and challenges of community engagement programming. BobbiJo received a bachelor's degrees in both history and psychology from Hastings College and a master’s degree in history from the University of Alabama.
Utah Campus Compact Website Issues Continue
After spending a few weeks attempting to salvage the Utah Campus Compact website it has become clear that the attack was so extensive we will need to completely rebuild our site. We will maintain a static page at utahcampuscompact.org
while we migrate to a microsite with National Campus Compact over the next couple of months. Updated information and materials will be posted to the Utah Campus Compact Facebook page
and Twitter feed
. Thank you for your patience!
