Campus Compact notes with sadness the passing of Liz Hollander, Campus Compact president from 1997 – 2006. We celebrate her great contributions to educating citizens and building communities during her time as president and throughout her career. Liz requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a Providence youth and arts organization she was very involved with, Community MusicWorks.

Donations can be made online at www.communitymusicworks.org (click the Donate Now button) or by mail at Community MusicWorks, 1392 Westminster Street, Providence, RI 02909. Read more about Liz’s life and career here, here, and here.
