In the spirit of Dr. Newman’s leadership, Campus Compact is seeking student nominations for the Newman Civic Fellows Award to recognize student leaders with both the motivation and ability to make substantial contributions toward public problem solving—those that go beyond traditional service activities in their community involvement. Each institution’s nominee will become a Newman Civic Fellow, representing your school among a national group of leaders. Students will receive an award certificate and an invitation to join the Newman Civic Fellows online network. Newman Civic Fellows will be featured on Campus Compact’s national website and in state-specific activities as appropriate.
Nominations must be made by the president of the institution, so please encourage students, faculty or service directors to bring recommendations for nominees to that office. Sophomores and juniors at four-year schools and second-year students from community colleges are eligible for nomination. Only one student per campus may be nominated each year, and each member of KsCC may have a Newman Civic Fellow. Presidents are asked to submit a letter of nomination along with an abstract summary of the nominee’s community involvement and a photo. Newman Civic Fellows will receive certificates and invitations to join the Newman Civic Fellows network shortly after the nomination process is closed.
The entire nomination process, and additional details, can be found here: http://www.compact.org/initiatives/campus-compact-awards-programs/the-frank-newman-leadership-award/.
