Campus Compact recognizes 3 NC students as Newman Civic Fellows

Boston, MA – The national Campus Compact network has recognized three North Carolina students as 2015 Newman Civic Fellows: UNC Charlotte’s Sarah Whitmire, Elon University’s Nicole Molinaro, and UNC Asheville’s Runda Alamour. These students are among the 201 Newman Fellows from 36 states and the District of Columbia to be honored for making an investment in their communities through service, research, and advocacy.

Newman Civic Fellows are nominated by college or university presidents whose institutions are part of the Campus Compact network. This year saw a record number of students recognized.

“These students represent the next generation of public problem solvers and civic leaders. They serve as national examples of the role that higher education can—and does—play in building a better world,” said Dr. Richard Guarasci, chair of the Campus Compact board and president of Wagner College (NY).

Elon University senior Nicole Molinaro has distinguished herself through service and advocacy related to international human rights and democratic participation. She taught English in Palestine and interned with social justice organizations in Jordan. At Elon, she led voter engagement campaigns and was president of the model United Nations.

In his nomination, President Leo Lambert praised Molinaro’s “deep” involvement in international social issues as well as her “intellectual curiosity, personal charisma, dedication to justice and ability to inspire her peers.”

UNC Asheville senior Runda Alamour is committed to education that respects differences and

builds community. As president of the statewide Student North Carolina Association of Educators, she has tutored in local schools, organized anti-bullying workshops, and led rallies in support of NC public education. Recently, Alamour organized a campus vigil and community conversation in honor of students killed in Chapel Hill.

“Whether it is in the classroom, in the community, or in statewide programming, Runda epitomizes the equity and advocacy that she so deeply values,” said UNC Asheville Chancellor Mary Grant.

UNCC Newman Fellow Sarah Whitmire

UNC Charlotte’s Sarah Whitmire is a third-year student who stands out for her on-campus and community-based health research. She has worked with faculty, with practitioners in Carolinas Healthcare System, and most notably with a group of women experiencing homelessness through a two-year community-based research project.

UNC Charlotte Chancellor Philip Dubois wrote, “Although she has explored the relationship between health behaviors, education, and outcomes in multiple settings, she has always been driven to understand the intersection between the patient, the protocol, and the system.”

Named in honor of Dr. Frank Newman, one of the founders of Campus Compact, the award is sponsored by the KPMG Foundation. In keeping with their generation’s emphasis on networks over hierarchies, Newman Civic Fellows will share ideas and materials to further their work through an exclusive online community especially for Fellows.

“We are proud to support Campus Compact in bringing attention to these extraordinary students,” said Bernard J. Milano, president of the KPMG Foundation and Campus Compact board member. “KPMG seeks a diverse talent pool of students who share our values, one of which involves service to the communities in which we live and work.”

Colleges and universities make AmeriCorps work

ac-week-logo-600x258Last week we celebrated AmeriCorps Week, an annual recognition of AmeriCorps alums, programs, and members who get things done to make our communities better! North Carolina Campus Compact has been a proud AmeriCorps VISTA program sponsor since 2003, and our VISTA members past and present have worked to develop many successful campus community partnerships. But our program is not the only AmeriCorps project in North Carolina that furthers the public service mission of higher education. Several college and universities sponsor their own unique AmeriCorps programs.

In the eastern part of the state, at least three prominent university-sponsored AmeriCorps programs are getting things done. At UNC Wilmington, the Quality Enhancement for Non-profit Organizations (QENO) project sponsors an AmeriCorps VISTA program that places members at human service non-profits in New Hanover and surrounding counties to build organizational capacity and strengthen volunteer management processes. At Fayetteville State University, an AmeriCorps VISTA project sponsored by the Office of College Access Programs places members at local high schools and youth development agencies to support college access programming for low-income youth. Finally, at East Carolina University’s College of Education, an exciting state AmeriCorps program called Operation Link mobilizes AmeriCorps members to work with elementary and middle school children of military families on STEM and robotics programs.

UNC-Chapel Hill hosts two prominent AmeriCorps programs: the NC Literacy Corps and the College Advising Corps. The NC Literacy Corps is hosted by UNC’s SCALE, the Student Coalition for Action in Literacy. Literacy Corps members serve as tutors, teachers, and program developers at campus and community-based literacy organizations across the state. The College Advising Corps is also hosted by UNC-Chapel Hill, though the organization works through 24 partner colleges and universities across the country to place recent graduates at underserved high schools as near-peer college access mentors and advisors. In North Carolina alone, the Carolina Advising Corps serves over 50 high schools across the state. Most of the advisor positions are AmeriCorps placements.

UNC Greensboro’s Center for New North Carolinians sponsors the AmeriCorps ACCESS project, which places AmeriCorps members at non-profit agencies in 8 counties to help immigrant and refugee families access human services, become economically self-sufficient, and build bridges between immigrant and mainstream communities.

Finally, a number of campuses across our state are home to Bonner programs, many of which are supported by AmeriCorps Education Award funds. These competitive merit and need-based scholarships focus on developing the next generation of community service leaders by placing undergrads in volunteer roles at local non-profits. AmeriCorps affiliated Bonner programs in North Carolina are currently active at Warren Wilson College, Mars Hill College, and Pfeiffer University.

No doubt there are countless other examples of connections and partnerships between AmeriCorps programs and colleges and universities in our state. The Corporation for National and COmmunity Service, the federal agency that manages AmeriCorps, compiles a complete profile of North Carolina’s AmeriCorps programs. Together, we are all working to get things done.

Recent winter weather did not stop more than 170 participants from attending the 2015 Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement (PACE) Conference at Elon University on Wednesday, Feb. 18. Faculty, staff, administrators and community members representing 28 institutions in 6 states spent a winter day warmed by the friendly exchange of new ideas and best practices. Nearly thirty workshops, delivered by state and national experts focused on service-learning pedagogy, institutional strategies for campus-community engagement, and research into community-based learning and service.

Highlights of the event included a provocative address by Dr. Rick Battistoni, Director of the Feinstein Institute for Public Service at Providence College; a special track of workshops in partnership with Community-Campus Partnerships for Health on topics related to higher education engagement with public health issues; and presentation of the Compact’s annual civic engagement awards. For more information and photos, view our complete PACE 2015 highlights.

Special thanks to Elon University for hosting and to our lead conference sponsor, the Community Engagement Collaboratory.

The 2016 PACE Conference will be held on February 10 at High Point University.

North Carolina Campus Compact is proud to announce the recipients of our 2015 engagement awards. Each year, our network recognizes outstanding individuals for their efforts to advance the field of civic and community engagement in our state. This year we honor one president, one faculty member, and two staff administrators who work to realize their college or university’s commitment to becoming an “engaged campus.”

The recipient of the 2015 Leo M. Lambert Engaged Leader Award is Wake Forest University President Nathan Hatch. The 2015 Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award goes to UNC Greensboro Assistant Professor of Interior Architecture Travis Hicks. The Civic Engagement Professional of the Year Awards recognize staff members in two separate categories: Lane Perry of Western Carolina University is the 2015 “Emerging Leader” honoree, and Dena Shonts of Central Piedmont Community College is this year’s “Sustainer.”

Each award recipient was honored during a special ceremony earlier this week at the network’s annual Pathways to Achieving Civic Engagement (PACE) Conference. High Point University President Nido Qubein, chair of the Compact’s executive board, presented the awards.

Leo M. Lambert Engaged Leader Award

Named in honor of Elon University’s president Dr. Leo Lambert, who was the first NC Campus Compact Executive Board Chair, the Lambert Engaged Leader Award is given annually to one North Carolina college or university leader who is committed to creating and sustaining efforts that deeply impact community and campus. The honoree is nominated and selected by fellow presidents and chancellors whose institutions are members of the Compact network.

Since becoming the 13th president of Wake Forest University in 2005, Dr. Nathan O. Hatch has overseen a strategic focus on the university’s mission, Pro Humanitate (“For Humanity”). During his tenure, Wake has developed new programs to educate the whole person, reinvent the 21st century liberal arts education with an emphasis on personal and career preparedness, and build community through a three-year residency requirement. Dr. Hatch established the Office of Personal Career Development with a mandate to develop mentoring, course offerings, lectures and retreats that help students think through larger questions about how values should shape professional choices. In 2014, Hatch saw the creation of the Pro Humanitate Institute, which brings together many of Wake’s community engagement efforts, furthers the university’s commitment to the common good, and creates new opportunities for student learning in and out of the classroom.

Within the greater Winston-Salem community, President Hatch is recognized as an influential leader. A board member of the United Way of Forsyth County, he served as chairman of the 2010 United Way Campaign. He is a vocal ally of numerous community-based efforts that are transforming the city as it moves from a manufacturing-based economy to an information-based economy.

Wake Forest University became a founding member of North Carolina Campus Compact in 2002 under President Thomas K. Hearn, Jr.

Robert L. Sigmon Service Learning Award

The Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award recognizes one faculty member in the state for significant contributions to the practice of service-learning, a pedagogical strategy that links community service to classroom study and reflection. North Carolina native Robert Sigmon, for whom the award is named, pioneered the approach in the 1970s.

Assistant Professor Travis L. Hicks is the tenth Sigmon winner, and the second from UNCG. Dr. Spoma Jovanovic, a professor in the department of communication studies, received the award in 2012. The award was first presented in 2006.

Four and a half years ago Hicks left a successful private sector career to teach full-time in UNCG’s Department of Interior Architecture. Already, his community-engaged approach has shaped his department’s culture, activities, and vision. Examples of design projects carried out by Hicks’ students include a homeless shelter for a High Point church, a greenhouse for Steelman Park in Greensboro, and a redevelopment plan for the Greensboro neighborhood of College Grove.

Hicks was instrumental in launching the Center for Community-Engaged Design (CC-ED) in April 2014, at a new location in the Glenwood neighborhood near UNCG. The interdisciplinary research center fosters community/university partnerships for meaningful research and design. There, students and faculty collaborate with community members and partner organizations, engaging stakeholders in design processes to address critical issues in underserved areas.

For his outstanding work in interior design education, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation awarded Hicks the prestigious 2014 CIDA Award of Excellence. In 2012, he received the university’s Mary Francis Stone Teaching Excellence Award, and he won the College of Arts & Sciences Teaching Excellence Award in 2013.

Civic Engagement Professionals of the Year

The Civic Engagement Profession of the Year Award recognizes a staff person for efforts to institutionalize a campus-wide vision of service, support the engagement of faculty and students, and form innovative campus-community partnerships. The award may be presented to both an “Emerging Leader” – with less than 5 years of professional work in the field – and to a longer-tenured “Sustainer.”

The 2015 “Emerging Leader” Professional of the Year, Dr. Lane G. Perry, III, joined Western Carolina University in 2012 as the director of the Center for Service Learning. Since then, Perry has fostered new collaborations to create and expand programs that link student learning and community service. He spearheaded creation of the Provost’s Advisory Board for Community Engagement and saw the number of service-learning courses grow from 14 documented classes in 2010 to over 50 courses today.

In 2013, Perry received a matched grant valued at $18,000 from the American Association of Colleges & Universities to develop the Ripple Effect Learning Community, an interdisciplinary program that has served 42 first-year WCU students over the past two years. Perry also supported a partnership between a Western entrepreneurship professor and Habitat for Humanity. The connection led to new Habitat projects in Jackson County, a campus Habitat chapter, and a new business plan for a local Habitat Restore. Also in 2013, Perry was elected to the board of the International Association for Research in Service Learning and Community Engagement.

In a letter nominating Perry for the award, one senior colleague wrote: “Lane’s energy, expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, and integrity are unparalleled.”

Civic Engagement "Sustainer" Dena Shonts

Civic Engagement “Sustainer” Dena Shonts

The 2015 “Sustainer” Professional of the Year is Dena K. Shonts, director of service-learning at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) in Charlotte. Since joining the student life staff at CPCC in 2004, Shonts has embodied the school’s growing support for academic service-learning and community engagement. Shonts became the college’s first dedicated service-learning coordinator in 2005 and became its first director of service-learning in 2008. She now oversees 4 professional staff serving all six CPCC campuses. Shonts has worked with more than 50 instructors from departments and disciplines as diverse as human services, biology, and welding; and she has cultivated learning partnerships with 100 community organizations. Her team oversees 25 community-based work study students each semester, and she has instituted numerous college-wide service programs and events, including an annual volunteer fair, MLK Day of Service, and alternative breaks.

“She has added so many programs to CPCC and has helped us grow as an institution,” said one nominator, “creating a true community college experience that encompasses not only academics, but a desire to make our community better.”

Shonts’s efforts have helped Central Piedmont appear on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll in six of the last seven years the award was given, making CPCC the only community college in North Carolina so distinguished. The school was one of just two North Carolina community colleges to make the Honor Roll in 2014.

Any North Carolina Campus Compact member campus representative may nominate outstanding faculty and staff for the Sigmon Service-Learning Award or the Civic Engagement Professional of the Year Award. The call for nominations for these awards is issued in late November/early December with a deadline to submit nomination packets in early January.

The Compact’s executive board nominates and selects the Lambert Engaged Leader honoree.

In early autumn, North Carolina Campus Compact recognizes engaged college students with our Community Impact Student Awards and the John Barnhill Civic Trailblazer Award.

Changing World of Work dialogue will explore role of higher education

office imageGiven momentous changes in the economy and in the workplace, what should we expect of American higher education in the 21st century? Do our colleges and universities bear some responsibility for the challenges facing young graduates today? And do we still look to those institutions to be the engines of social progress and economic development they have been in the past?

In January, education leaders and scholars launched a nationwide effort to spark local conversations around these questions. Led by the National Issues Forums Institute, the American Commonwealth Partnership at Augsburg College, and the Kettering Foundation this effort responds to concerns voiced by thousands of citizens in more than 160 forums where participants considered the future of higher education.

On March 26, North Carolina Campus Compact will host the first statewide, facilitated dialogue on “The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?” Led by Dr. Harry Boyte, Senior Scholar in Public Work Philosophy at Augsburg College, the session will engage higher education representatives from NC Campus Compact member schools and prepare them to host their own campus-community dialogues later this year.

Dr. Boyte is founder of the Center for Democracy and Citizenship at the Humphrey School of PUblic Affairs, now part of the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship at Augsburg College. Boyte is also a Senior Fellow at the University of Minnesota Senior Fellow at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs, and Visiting Professor at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in South Africa.

He has authored numerous books on democracy and community organizing. His most recent is an edited volume, Democracy’s Education: Public Work, Citizenship, and the Future of Colleges and Universities, a collection of essays by leading university presidents, policy makers, faculty, students, community organizers and public intellectuals on how educators can be agents– rather than victims– of change.

The North Carolina Campus Compact event is free and open to member campuses only. Each campus may send two representatives. Participating schools must commit to hosting their own dialogue on this topic sometime in 2015. To RSVP to this special invitation, please email Rene Summers (summerre[@]elon.edu).

Cosponsors of the Changing World of Work project include the American Democracy Project, Campus Compact, Imagining America, The Democracy Commitment, Minnesota AARP, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the American Library Association’s Center for Civic Life, and the Joffre T. Whisenton Public Scholars Program.

Campus Compact VISTAs lead 1300 volunteers on MLK Day of Service

On Monday, January 19th, we celebrated the life and legacy of one of the most prominent role models of this country-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In addition to being the leader in the fight against racial inequality, Dr. King is also a preeminent figure in the fight for social and economic equality. On MLK Day, communities across the nation came together in a day of service to continue Dr. King’s dream of a just society.

Our AmeriCorps VISTAs have each dedicated a year of service to fight poverty all across North Carolina. For the past few months, many of our members have been planning MLK Day of Service projects to mobilize students and community members for not only a day of service, but to use this day as a catalyst for a long term increase in community-engagement. This year, our VISTAs provided service opportunities for over 1300 volunteers who served for a combined 4600 hours.

UNCA volunteers encourage reading.

At UNC Asheville, VISTA Jess-Mara Jordan serving with the Key Center, mobilized over 140 volunteers who worked at nine different service project sites From organizing donations at Habitat ReStore, making arts and crafts for children, to beautifying the streets in Downtown Asheville, the volunteers collectively served for approximately 900 hours. Jess-Mara also spoke of how it warmed her heart to see “everything and everyone, including our new Chancellor, come together for my second MLK Day of Service at UNC-Asheville. Last year was record-breaking and it felt great to see so many people invested in service but to see that the culture has not only remained, but is still growing has made every late night and every little detail worth it.” Read the UNCA News Feature.

VISTAs Kemi Ademuyo, Anna Mahathey, and Shannon Barr of  High Point University‘s Campus Support Program’s Office coordinated an entire weekend of events. On Monday, January 19th, 679 volunteers decided to make it a day ON and volunteered at 20 different community sites in High Point, collectively serving over 2000 hours in a single day. Volunteers participated in a street clean up, packing essential items for the homeless, preparing and cleaning a community garden at the Macedonia Family Resource Center, painting and sprucing up various churches and spending time with senior residents at the Piedmont Christian Home. They also packed over 20,000 meals with Stop HungerNow and hosted a field day at the Hartley YMCA for the children. Our Executive Director Leslie Garvin stopped by to help out as well. The volunteers and their projects were also featured on the local news here.

VISTA Hannah Paek at East Carolina University‘s Volunteer and Service-Learning Center coordinated a Day of Service with the vision of celebrating Dr. King’s legacy of creating a “Beloved Community.” Over 240 volunteers led by student leaders participated in an opening ceremony which included a screening of the I Have a Dream speech, serving at 10 project sites and a closing ceremony which allowed the volunteers to share their visions and hopes of a “Beloved Community.” The volunteers were featured in this news segment.

6th annual MLK Day Read-In.

VISTAs Naijla Faizi and Natasha Vos with Wake Forest’s Pro Humanitate Institute collaborated with Winston-Salem State University and Hand-On Northwest NC to host the 6th AnnualRead-In. Over 160 volunteers participated to work with 115 elementary school aged children. The children were encourage to read, learn the history of the civil rights movement and each were presented with three free books. Naijla worked with several on-campus and off-campus organizations to make the Read-In a success. She collaborated with the sororities at Wake Forest University who hosted a book-drive for the Read-In that collected enough books for not only this year, but also the next! Our own VISTA Leader Catherine Casteel dropped in to participate in the Read-In.

VISTA Kali Hackett at UNC Greensboro Office of Leadership and Service-Learning coordinated 9 projects with 70 volunteers throughout the city. In addition to mural painting at Youth Focus, street cleanup, baking goodies for hospice patients, some of the volunteers also participated in the Day of Service event hosted by the Greensboro Volunteer Center at the Four Seasons Mall. NC Campus Compact Program Coordinator Chad Fogleman also stopped by to participate in a service project with the volunteers.

Hosp House

ASU students work at Hospitality House.

VISTA, Brittany Johnson with the Hospitality House of Boone, led a team of 20 volunteers who cleaned, painted and did minor repairs at the Welcome Home Thriftique as part of the MLK Challenge. The volunteers also got a chance to visit the Hospitality House and learn about its services. Brittany shared that “My favorite thing about this day of service is that students choose to have a day on rather than take a day off for the sake of helping others. The students who volunteered at the Thriftique were so excited to dive into the work needed. Their teamwork and passion made a huge difference for our project. I was thrilled to be able to share our cause and purpose with them. These student volunteers accepted and completed the challenge, proving that anything is possible and how working together can create change.”

Our VISTAs continue Dr. King’s legacy day in and day out, as they tirelessly work to build the capacities of their community organizations and universities for the growth of a more engaged and better-served society. They believe, as Dr. King did, that “All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”

Winter network meetings focus on social justice

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHow do we define difference and diversity? When when we talk about inclusion, who is in the “unnamed center”? And how do concepts of social justice inform our community engagement work?

Over 55 staff and faculty from 21 campuses explored these questions during our winter network meetings at Catawba Valley Community College (Jan. 8) and Duke University (Jan. 14). The interactive sessions were led by Dr. Silvia Bettez, UNC Greensboro associate professor of Education and author of a 2011 book, But Don’t Call Me White: Mixed Race Women Exposing Nuances of Privilege and Oppression Politics.

Dr. Bettez made her scholarly points as she facilitated peer sharing, surprised us with an online awareness test, and opened up discussions of power and privilege through an exercise drawn from Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed.

“I did love the presentation,” said Kristina Snader, who was attending her first Compact network meeting as UNCG’s new assistant director of Community Engagement. “My undergrad degree was in social justice so I enjoy thinking about these questions. And in my position I’m on the lookout all the time for creative ways to teach our students these concepts.”

Network meetings are free to staff and faculty from NC Campus Compact member campuses. Another favorite part of the day is the campus sharing session, where representatives from each school discuss new community engagement efforts.

“I get so nerdily excited over meetings like this,” confessed Kate Johnson, associate director of Community Service at Appalachian State.

In keeping with the meeting theme, several schools discussed plans to highlight social justice issues on campus. Appalachian State will build on its social justice coffee hour series to create a social action plan that can guide the school’s response to events and issues of the day and integrate these concerns into service and engagement programming. (UNC Asheville also has a social justice coffee hour.) Western Carolina University’s Social Justice Institute (coincidentally) took place last week, and NC A&T State University is planning a diversity conference for October 17. Elon’s Kernodle Center is also thinking about social justice and planning to align its work using an issue-based structure.

Campuses also shared exciting new ways of connecting with community partners. Warren Wilson College teamed with UNC Asheville and Mars Hill to host successful “community partner happy hours” last fall to encourage faculty networking with community nonprofit staff. The group is planning more gatherings this spring, including sessions on advocacy and course development. Central Piedmont Community College is hosting free, professional development workshops where local non-profit staff can take advantage of some of the college’s leadership and career service trainings. Duke University is hosting a special gathering of its domestic and international Duke Engage partners prior to the International Service-Learning Summit at Duke in early March.

During lunch, NC Campus Compact’s new executive director Leslie Garvin shared information about upcoming events and new initiatives, including plugs for the Civic Engagement Institute on “Collective Impact” (Feb. 17) and the annual PACE Conference for Service-Learning Faculty (Feb. 18). Garvin also introduced a new effort among the network’s community college members to develop a set of community engagement metrics tailored to the community college environment; and she encouraged schools to take advantage of a new online toolkit from national Campus Compact, “Designing and Delivering a Service-Learning Course.”

The summer network meetings are planned for early August 2015. For more information about the NC Campus Compact network, please contact Leslie Garvin.
