This small volume reflects on three years of success in mobilizing students at the campus, state, and national levels during Campus Compact's Raise Your Voice (RYV) campaign.

Written by five RYV student leaders, Lessons Learned includes a frank discussion of barriers to engagement and how to overcome them, including ways to collaborate, cut through bureaucracy, and mobilize students; a new working definition of civic engagement that incorporates voice, action, and reflection; a look at the role of higher education in fostering civic engagement and preparing students for public life; and ideas for how to begin the process of building an active, civically engaged campus.
