Oregon Campus Compact has partnered with CollegeServe to offer our member campuses access to the CollegeServe management software.
ORCC members will receive the set-up and the first years' membership fees for free. This set up fee is normally $2500 and the first years' fees are $5000, that's a $7500 benefit for being a Campus Compact member.
Because we believe in the power of college students to create a better world and the value of service on educational outcomes even non-members can benefit; by mentioning ORCC they can have their set up fees waived.
If any non member campus has been thinking about becoming an Oregon Campus Compact member, now is the time. Joining ORCC will waive these first year fees and any campus under 7000 FTE will experience significant and continuing savings in the years after.
CollegeServe is an award-winning volunteer management tool that will organize volunteers and raise the profile of service on college campuses. For more information, contact Josh Todd at 503.406.3575.
