The primary goals of the Newman Civic Fellowship are:
- To support community-committed students from Campus Compact member institutions in their personal, civic, and professional development so as to prepare them for the long-term work of public problem solving and of building equitable communities
- To build a network of civically-oriented college student leaders and alumni characterized by vibrant and productive relationships
To advance these goals, Campus Compact provides a variety of learning opportunities for fellows through national and local gatherings as well as web-based offerings. Through a series of conversations, surveys, a focus group, and literature review, the following skills were identified as priority areas for fellowship learning opportunities.
