National Campus Compact Awards

Newman Civic Fellows Award

Each year Campus Compact presents awards for exceptional work in the field of civic engagement in higher education.  The Newman Civic Fellows Award honors inspiring college student leaders who have demonstrated their investment in finding solutions to the challenges that face our communities throughout the country. Each president and chancellor can nominate one student to become a Newman Civic Fellow who will then represent your school in a national group of student leaders. Students will receive an award certificate and an invitation to join the Newman Civic Fellows online network.

Nominations for the 2018 Newman Civic Fellows Award are due February 1, 2018.
