The fellowship recognizes students who stand out for their commitment to creating positive change in communities locally and around the world.
In March, Carlos Brown ’23, a Yale College student enrolled in the Brady-Johnson Grand Strategy Program, was selected as a 2022 Campus Compact Newman Civic Fellow.
The fellowship recognizes students who stand out for their commitment to creating positive change in communities locally and around the world. Fellows are nominated by Campus Compact member presidents and chancellors, who are invited to select one outstanding student from their campus each year.
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.
“Carlos has deftly supported the community engagement efforts of Yale students. He has done so by advocating for safe policies, adapting service models of existing student organizations, and mobilizing students to new opportunities. Carlos has effectively created a home on campus for students during a unique time and connected countless Yale students to our vibrant New Haven community. Carlos continues to flourish in leadership roles on campus and shows enormous potential to continue addressing social justice issues in his remaining time at Yale and beyond,” said Yale President Peter Salovey.
