Cru's campus ministry is committed to offering students and faculty a chance to know Jesus and take the gospel to the campus, community and world. Cru serves as a resource on high school and college campuses through educational, social and spiritual programs that range from large, campus-wide events and conferences to small Bible studies and accountability groups.
Shannon Compere is the Executive Director of the campus ministry and serves on the U.S. Leadership Team. Shannon joined the staff of Cru in 1991, beginning at the University of South Carolina. She has also served as the Executive Director of Leadership Development, the Executive Director of Mission Capacity and of Field Missions in the campus ministry prior to taking her current role.
served by more than 3,200 missionary staff
engaging more than 53,600 students and faculty with more than 8,400 small group leaders (students, faculty and Cru staff and volunteers) on more than 750 high school and college campuses
present with teams in 75 international cities
working within ethnic, linguistic, social and professional identities including: international students (Bridges International), Hispanics/Latinos (Destino), Asian-Americans (Epic), African-Americans (through a partnership with Impact), Native Americans/First Nations peoples (Nations), South Asian Americans (Design), ROTC members (Valor), grad students and professors (Faculty Commons), and fraternity and sorority members (Greek Life)
Located around the country, Cru has several conferences each year that allow students and faculty to take a break for spiritual growth, community building and missional opportunities.
Cru provides domestic and global short-term projects for students and faculty to tell others about Jesus. In some cases, students and faculty are also empowered to meet spiritual and physical needs of those suffering from social injustices (like human trafficking) or natural disasters, through the campus ministry’s work with partner ministries.
