SEE TABS BELOW FOR NOMINATION PACKETS

After feedback from stakeholders, Indiana Campus Compact decided that some changes to our annual Service Engagement Awards were in order. Besides the new timeline, look for the following changes.

  • Shorter and easier:

    • Nomination packets are now only two pages long
    • Nominators are now able to provide all supporting documents including summaries of nominees’ qualifications, with no essays from the nominees necessary for faculty, staff, and community partner awards
    • Nominators for the student award are also able to provide most information, but we will require a short, 500-word community-commitment statement from the student
    • No videos!
  • More intentional and inclusive:

    • The Community Service Director Award will now be named the Community Engagement Professional Award
    • The Outstanding Community Partner Award will be a non-competitive award and we encourage all campuses to put forth their own award-winning community partners
    • Students applying for the Wood Award are now required to have a least one year of college left at the time the award is given (spring) to allow them to serve in a leadership position with Indiana Campus Compact.

BRIAN DOUGLAS HILTUNEN AWARD FOR THE OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE SCHOLARSHIP OF ENGAGEMENT

The Brian Douglas Hiltunen Faculty Award for the Outstanding Contribution to the Scholarship of Engagement honors mid to late career faculty at Indiana Campus Compact partner institutions who exemplify what it means to be an engaged scholar. Brian Hiltunen served Indiana Campus Compact for four years as a project director and helped to design our faculty development programs, prior to his death in 1999. The Hiltunen Award was established in 2000 to honor Brian’s legacy and his work with faculty who are practicing the scholarship of engagement.

OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY PARTNER AWARD

Indiana Campus Compact recognizes the incredible dedication and work that our partner institutions’ community partners put into co-educating their students. We recognize that whether we talk about community service, service-learning, community-based research, or any other form of community engagement, institutions are not doing the work alone. It is only accomplished through strong partnerships with community organizations. We believe that each one of these generous agencies deserves recognition at our annual Award Ceremony and there is more to be gained by bringing them all together to celebrate than to choose one over another.
