The Office of Civic & Community Engagement is currently accepting applications for the Newman Civic Fellowship. Intended to honor the leadership legacy of Campus Compact founder Frank Newman, the Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are change makers and public problem-solvers that:
- Engage in collaborative action with others from campus or from surrounding communities in order to create long-term social change
- Take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization
- Demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement
The Fellowship is open to enrolled sophomore and junior students in good academic standing. Applications are due by January 20 at 5 PM EST.
The Newman Civic Fellowship is a year-long program through Campus Compact. The Fellowship provides students with training and resources that help develop strategies for social change, and includes virtual learning opportunities and networking as part of a national network of engaged student leaders.
If you have questions about the WFU Newman Civic Fellow application, please contact Marianne Magjuka. Selected students will go through a brief interview process between January 22-24. One student will then be selected and nominated by Wake Forest University for the Fellowship.
