The nomination period is now open for the Newman Civic Fellowship, a yearlong program that recognizes and supports community-committed students at Campus Compact member institutions.
The fellowship is a one-year experience that provides students with training and resources that nurture their assets and passions to help them develop strategies for social change. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides in-person and virtual learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need to serve as effective agents of change in addressing public problems and building equitable communities.
Presidents and chancellors are encouraged to nominate one current student on the basis of their motivation and potential to create long-term social change. Nominations are due February 1, 2019. Learn more and nominate a student at compact.org/newman-nomination.
The Newman Civic Fellows Awards are made possible through the generous support of the KPMG Foundation.

The Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award recognizes one senior faculty member (post-tenure or middle-to-late career at institutions without tenure) each year. Honorees (who must be affiliated with a Campus Compact member institution) are recognized for exemplary engaged scholarship, including leadership in advancing students’ civic learning, conducting community-based research, fostering reciprocal community partnerships, building institutional commitments to service-learning and civic engagement, and other means of enhancing higher education’s contributions to the public good. The award — previously known as the Thomas Ehrlich Faculty Award for Service-Learning — is named in honor of Thomas Ehrlich, former chair of the Campus Compact board of directors and president emeritus of Indiana University.
