Sociology Professor Selected for Distinguished Team

Mathew Johnson, associate professor of sociology, has been selected as one of ten scholars nationwide by Campus Compact to participate in the New Leaders Organizing Team. The purpose of the team is to foster deeper collaborative dialogue, planning, and action on campuses committed to civic and community engagement. According to the president of Campus Compact, “these scholars represent a group of emerging leaders who are making an impact on higher education’s ability to serve the public good.”

Campus Compact is a national coalition of more than 1,100 college and university presidents – representing some 6 million students – who are committed to fulfilling the civic purposes of higher education. As the only national association dedicated solely to this mission, Campus Compact is a leader in building civic engagement into campus and academic life.
