Raise Yo​​ur Voice

Raise Your Voice is a national effort that engages students in public life and enables them to speak out on issues of importance to them. Rhode Island Campus Compact, in collaboration with Massachusetts Campus Compact, offers competitive grants to campuses to support civic activities including student dialogues, conferences and service. Presidential Activity Funds, to support dialogues and activities between February and March 2010, will be awarded. Grant funding will encourage campuses to develop activities focused on democratic processes, the student role in building engaged campuses and issue-based debate and discussion.

Many PC students have successfully applied for and received this grant. Here are some projects students have done:
