2018 Newman Civic Fellows Announced

"The cultivation of community-committed leaders has never been more crucial…
Our country needs more people who know how to bring communities together for
positive change."
— Andrew Seligsohn, Campus Compact President

Seven students from the State of Montana were recently honored to be announced as 2018 Newman Civic Fellows. These seven students will be part of a cohort of 268 students from around the country.

The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who have demonstrated an investment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country. The fellowship, named for Campus Compact founder Frank Newman, provides training and resources that nurture students’ assets and passions to help them develop strategies to achieve social change. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides learning opportunities focused on the skills fellows need in order to serve as effective agents of change in addressing public problems and building equitable communities.
