Quick Start Guide for Faculty

This page applies to Compact2Learn faculty members.

Welcome to Compact2Learn!

Compact2Learn is a tool used to capture student civic engagement experiences and measure civic learning outcomes. Students use Compact2Learn to track the details of their service or civic engagement programs, allowing institutions to evaluate student learning outcomes. Compact2Learn offers a forms and evaluation tool and an optional Online Approval feature, which allows supervisors and faculty to verify service or civic engagement programs. You can use Compact2Learn to verify supervisors' approval of student activities.

If your students participate in programs that use Online Approval, you can also monitor your students' progress with reports and approve or reject activities on behalf of a supervisor, if needed. Once a student submits activities for approval, you are notified via email.
