The Newman Civic Fellowship is a national program through Campus Compact. This program recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers. The fellowship experience allows students to become a part of a national network of student leaders and provides those students with training and resources. Each year, we invite students who are interested in the fellowship to apply for the nomination. The final decision on the nomination is made by the President of the College. The fellowship does not carry a monetary award. For more about the program, visit the Campus Compact Newman Civic Fellowship website.
