Griffin Mills ’21 honored as Newman Civic Fellow

Griffin Mills ’21 has been named a Newman Civic Fellow for his commitment to solving challenges facing communities locally, nationally and internationally.

Griffin Mills ’21 has been named a Newman Civic Fellow by Campus Compact, a Boston-based nonprofit working to advance the public purposes of higher education.

Mills, from Sayville, New York, is majoring in sustainability and minoring in poverty studies.

He is one of 290 students from colleges and universities across the nation who will make up the organization’s 2020-2021 cohort of Newman Civic Fellows. The fellowship is a yearlong program for students from Campus Compact member institutions. The students selected for the fellowship were identified as leaders on their campuses who demonstrate a commitment to finding solutions to challenges facing communities locally, nationally and internationally.

The fellowship is named for the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact’s founders, who was an advocate for civic engagement in higher education. Campus Compact member presidents and chancellors may nominate one student from their institution for the fellowship.

Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides the students with a variety of learning and networking opportunities that emphasize personal, professional, and civic growth. Each year, Fellows are invited to a national, in-person conference of Newman Civic Fellows and participate in virtual training and networking opportunities. The fellowship also provides fellows with pathways to apply for exclusive scholarship and post-graduate opportunities.

The Newman Civic Fellowship is supported by the KPMG Foundation and Newman’s Own Foundation.
