Hosting National Students Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness

American University - DC, Washington, D.C.

Several universities offer their space to national nonprofits to host conferences on important matters of the public good, showing their support for the issue and fostering discourse on it. For instance, when American University hosted the national conference of the National Students Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, representatives from more than 100 schools from around the world came to discuss poverty issues. Local food banks and homeless shelters donated their services for the attendees, showing their support for the four-day event.

Through Campus Compact, we can help students learn the value of building communities. The benefit to our campus is not merely that our civic community is improved. It is that our students graduate with habits of good citizenship they will carry through life."
