Starting in the fall 1999, SDSU s Freshman Success Programs, with The Center for Community-Based Service Learning, began coordinating 12 community service-learning projects that faculty members include in their University Seminar class during the fall semester. These projects are geared to introduce freshman students to community involvement and community-based learning. Through these projects, the CCBSL introduces first-year students and SDSU faculty to the rich learning that comes as a result of involving students in activities that address community-identified needs.

I consider Campus Compact to be one of the most enlightened and farsighted ventures that American colleges and universities have undertaken.... It provides evidence that there are, in the world of higher education, people more than willing to pitch in, people of vision and commitment."

-John Gardner, former U.S. Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare
