Spirit Mountain Community Fund Awards Campus Compact of Oregon grant to support Equity Action Teams
Spirit Mountain Community Fund, the foundation administered by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, announced this week that Campus Compact of Oregon will receive a $6,600 grant to support our Equity Action Team! Funds from SMCF will specifically benefit the team of individuals working to identify recommendations and best practices about Supporting Undocumented and Immigrant Students.
Campus Compact staff were honored to attend a check presentation on 12/13 with the tribal council of the Confederated Tribes, where we learned more about the history of the Tribes and the Fund, as well as our fellow grantees. Thank you to Spirit Mountain Community Fund for your support of Equity Action Teams!

MLK Day of Service 2018: Student Registration is Open!
Our annual MLK Day of Service is coming up on January 15th, 2018! The event will be held at Warner Pacific College and students from Warner, Concordia University, George Fox University, Mt. Hood Community College, Porland Community College, and Portland State University will join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King by serving the Mt. Tabor and surrounding neighborhoods.
Students from these six colleges are currently able to register for the event! Please pass this along to students who might be interested in serving!
The event is also an opportunity to reflect on how MLK's work resonates with us and motivates us today. This is a great resource that explore's some of the civil rights leader's lesser known speeches and writings, beyond the famous "I have a dream" speech.
Student participation in the event is sponsored in part by United Way of the Columbia-Willamette.
