Newman Civic Fellowship Info Session


The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers. Fellows are nominated by their president or chancellor on the basis of their potential for public leadership.

Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides students with training and resources that nurture their assets and passions and help them develop strategies for social change. The yearlong program includes virtual learning opportunities and networking as part of a national network of engaged student leaders and an optional in-person convening.

The Newman Civic Fellowship includes:

  • A national convening of Newman Civic Fellows (travel costs will be covered by LMU)

  • Virtual events focused on skill development and professional learning
  • Opportunities to submit conference proposals to present at Campus Compact affiliated conferences
  • One-on-one leadership development with a local mentor
  • Participation in a national network of engaged student leaders

In addition to these program components, Newman Civic Fellows also receive:

  • National recognition through Campus Compact website and media
  • Special scholarship opportunities from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute to participate in their Leadership and the American Presidency program
  • Opportunity to apply for Newman’s Own Foundation Fellowship
