Newman Civic Fellowship 2019
The Newman Civic Fellowship is a one-year fellowship for community-committed college students from Campus Compact member institutions. The fellowship honors the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact’s founders, who was a tireless advocate for civic engagement in higher education.
In the spirit of Dr. Newman’s leadership, Campus Compact member presidents and chancellors nominate one student who has demonstrated a capacity for leadership and an investment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country and abroad.
This year’s winner is Stephanie Jackson ’21. Stephanie Jackson is a sophomore at Denison who has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to civic engagement. She has proven herself to be an invaluable asset to the Denison Community Association (DCA) through her effective management of several service events. Stephanie’s dedication is also evident through her innovations as Chair of the Saturday Service Program, a weekly walk-in service opportunity for students and campus groups. Stephanie Jackson is a strong campus leader of exceptional merit.
