Welcoming Jim Eustrom and Yashica Island to the Campus Compact of Oregon Board of Directors
Campus Compact of Oregon is excited to welcome two new members to our Board of Directors. With the departure of longtime board members Chuck Schlimpert and Gary Withers, President and Executive Vice President of Concordia University respectively, Campus Compact has sought out committed partners to bring their expertise and experience to our Board.
Jim Eustrom serves as the Campus President of Chemeketa Community College's Yamhill Valley Campus. In addition, Jim is Chemeketa's Vice President of Instruction and Student Services. Jim was a member of the original ELSEE cohort in 2015-2016.
Yashica Island became Concordia University's first Director of Diversity and Intercultural Engagement in 2016. Yashica was a member of the 2016-2017 ELSEE cohort and will participate as a member of the Supporting Undocumented Students Equity Action Team this year.
Nominate Students for the 2018 Newman Civic Fellowship
The nomination period is now open for the Newman Civic Fellowship, which recognizes community-committed students from Campus Compact member institutions around the nation.
We are seeking nominations of undergraduate or graduate students who engage in collaborative action with others in order to create long-term social change, take action in addressing issues of inequality and political polarization, and demonstrate the motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement.
Each Campus Compact member president or chancellor can nominate one student to become a Newman Civic Fellow, who will then represent their institution in a national group of public problem solvers.
The online nomination form can be found here. Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM EST on February 1, 2018.

Host a College Access Corps Member to Support your Mentoring or College Access Program
Campus Compact is still looking to place two AmeriCorps national service members to serve with partner institution host sites who have similar post-secondary access programming or would like to build their program out to include college access coaching. College Access Corps (CAC) members support host site programs for a 10.5 month period to assist in the implementation and management of those programs' various education projects in conjunction with CAC components. Although there is a framework to the CAC program, the overall structure is flexible and can easily merge with projects that have similar missions.
Please get in touch with Program Manager Kaycie Lopez Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think this program could be a good fit for your school or organization.
