Campus Compact Impact

Campus Compact is a Boston-based national coalition of college and university presidents and state coordinators, dedicated to public and community service. University of La Verne hosted its national meeting on the main campus July 13 -15.

Jose Calderon recalled hearing poignant words from civil rights activist Cesar Chavez in the 1970s about the importance of helping and empowering others.

For Calderon, an activist himself and a professor at Pitzer College in Claremont, it was a message that has guided his life.

“The only thing for sure in life is death. The only question is how you’re going to spend your time,” Calderon said.
