Now Accepting Applications for 2016 Newman Civic Fellows

January 6, 2016

The nomination period for Campus Compact’s Newman Civic Fellows Award, which recognizes community-involved student leaders, is now open!

Campus Compact member presidents and chancellors are encouraged to nominate a student for this special recognition.

The Newman Civic Fellows Award honors the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact’s founders and a tireless advocate for the civic engagement of higher education. You can learn more about the 2015 Newman Civic Fellows here.

In the spirit of Dr. Newman’s leadership, we are seeking nominations of undergraduate or graduate students who are proven leaders with both the motivation and ability to make substantial contributions toward public problem solving. They will have also taken action in pursuit of long-term positive social change.

Each president and chancellor can nominate one student to become a Newman Civic Fellow who will then represent that institution in a national group of student leaders. Students will receive an award certificate and an invitation to join the Newman Civic Fellows online network. They will also be featured prominently on the Campus Compact national website and invited to participate in state-specific activities as appropriate.

The online nomination process is simple, and the application can be found here

Nominations will be accepted until February 29, 2016. Questions about the nomination process can be directed to Michaela Grenier at


Campus Compact is grateful to the KPMG Foundation and Newman’s Own Foundation for their support of the 2016 Newman Civic Fellows awards.
