CCLA Student Leader Reflections

The Center for Civic Learning & Action hires student leaders to work on various projects throughout the year that involve the Dickinson and Cumberland County communities. Below are some reflections from past and current students.

Newman Civic Fellows

Dickinson College is a Campus Compact member. As Campus Compact writes on their webpage, this fellowship "recognizes and supports community-committed students who are changemakers and public problem-solvers at Campus Compact member institutions." These fellows receive virtual learning opportunities and networking through Campus Connect.

CCLA Competitions

The Center for Civic Learning & Action designed the Civic Innovation Competition to try to meet the needs of the Carlisle community. The most recent competition was held in the Fall 2020 and was directed towards K-12 students in our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
