The nomination period for Campus Compact's Newman Civic Fellowship, which recognizes community-committed students, is now open! We are seeking nominations of undergraduate or graduate students who engage in collaborative action with others in order to create long-term social change, take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization, and demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement.
Nominations will be accepted until Thursday, January 17th, 2019 via this Google Form.
As a Campus Compact member institution, Manhattan College is encouraged to nominate a student for this comprehensive fellowship experience. The Newman Civic Fellowship honors the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact's founders and a tireless advocate for the civic engagement of higher education. The fellowship is a one-year experience, during which time fellows have access to learning opportunities, networking events, and mentoring. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides in-person and virtual learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need in order to serve as effective agents of change in addressing public problems and in building equitable communities.
Questions regarding the nomination process can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
