Reinvigorating the civic mission of higher education.

Maine Campus Compact is a coalition of 18 member campuses whose purpose is to catalyze and lead a movement to reinvigorate the public purposes and civic mission of higher education.

We seek to transform our campuses in ways that develop better informed, active citizen problem-solvers, stronger communities, and a more just democratic society. We believe that our campuses must be vital agents and architects of a flourishing democracy.

2018 Water Challenge

The Maine Student Water Challenge will give $100 stipends to 40 higher education students in Maine, organized into teams of 2-4, who develop an innovative Water Action Plan. The Water Action Plan will address a water related topic including educating and empowering a low income area about a local water quality issue, a curriculum for K-12 students focused on water quality or storm water runoff, or another pre-approved topic of the team’s choice.

Participants will get the opportunity to attend the final Water Challenge Polooza where they will be able to present their Water Action Plan as well as attend a SENCER training.

The Maine Student Water Challenge Guidelines will be posted soon and sent to participant’s emails.
