The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers at Campus Compact member institutions. Fellows are nominated by their president or chancellor on the basis of their potential for public leadership.
The 2019-2020 Newman Civic Fellow is second year student Shamsa Ahmed!
Shamsa is a leader actively working on promoting political voice and civic agency for women, young people, and those with marginalized identities. In addition to multiple student leadership roles, including representing her fellow students for the last two years as a member of the Augsburg student government, Shamsa founded and leads a campus chapter of Women for Political Change, a group focused on creating spaces for women and gender non-conforming individuals to explore identity and politics and to engage in the political process to make social change.
