Campus Compact for NH Award Nominations

Every year, UNH participates in Campus Compact for NH's President's Awards. The president gives 1 award each to a student or student organization, a member of the faculty/staff/administration, and a community partner, as well as nominating 1 student for the Newman Civic Fellowship.

This year, we want YOUR input! Who you do think deserves to be recognized for their work in the community? Please read the award descriptions below, and use the link to submit your nomination!

Please note: The nominations require a paragraph describing the nominee's passions and accomplishments. It will work on your phone, but may be easier to navigate from a laptop or desktop computer. Thanks!

Newman Civic Fellowship NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR THIS AWARD
The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers at Campus Compact member institutions. 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, named for Campus Compact founder Frank Newman, includes virtual learning opportunities and networking as part of a national network of engaged student leaders and an optional in-person convening.
