Nominate a student who has demonstrated outstanding leadership through their civic and community engagement or research and an ability to coordinate collective efforts to overcome community- or societal-based challenges through their work with other students, campus members, or the community at large. In line with CCMA’s strategic initiatives, your institution’s nominee should understand the importance of cross-cultural engagement and advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) through their work – as well as their individual role in contributing toward collective systemic change.
We encourage you to recognize a student whose leadership and efforts might otherwise not be raised up, and we encourage presidents to give preference to students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
Your institution’s 2022-2023 Mid-Atlantic Civic Fellow nominee should:
- Be enrolled at a Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic member institution during spring semester 2022.
- Be nominated by your institution’s president, with input from CCMA campus SAGE members and other community-engaged stakeholders encouraged.
- Be either an undergraduate or graduate student. Please remember that each institution is allowed to nominate one Mid-Atlantic Civic Fellow. Presidents at institutions that enroll both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to select an undergraduate student.
- Have one year or more of undergraduate or graduate education remaining. (i.e. nominees should be enrolled at their nominating institution for the entire 2022-2023 academic year)
- Commit to writing a brief statement about their work and future plans to Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic during their fellowship year.
- Receive the support and advisement of their institution’s Senior Advisory Group for Engagement (SAGE) member or other campus-based designee throughout the 2022-2023 Fellowship year.
