About the Newman Civic Fellowship
“The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers at Campus Compact member institutions. Fellows are nominated by their president or chancellor on the basis of their potential for public leadership.
Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides students with training and resources that nurture their assets and passions and help them develop strategies for social change. The yearlong program, named for Campus Compact founder Frank Newman, includes virtual learning opportunities and networking as part of a national network of engaged student leaders and an optional in-person convening.”Learn more about the Newman Civic Fellowship
A message from UMA’s current Newman Civic Fellow
The Newman Civic Fellowship has proved itself to be a wonderful and easy-to-approach resource for learning leadership skills, providing a meaningful practice ground for civic engagement, and providing opportunities for networking and developing potentially life-long connections with similarly minded students and mentors. Since nearly all of the correspondence and workshops are conducted online, I have found it easy to integrate into my life as a rural nontraditional student. I think this is a great program for anyone who is interested in learning how to engage more deeply in their community and to create lasting change.
