Each year Michigan Campus Compact awards students from member colleges and universities across the state for their outstanding commitment to service learning and civic engagement. Three types of awards are given: the Outstanding Community Impact Award, the Commitment to Service Award and the Heart and Soul Award. The Outstanding Community Award is given to students who have made service an integral part of their college experience in significant contribution to their community, through building partnerships and demonstration of personal reflection to a commitment of lifelong engagement. Congratulations to Nick Cook for receiving one of six Outstanding Community Impact awards through Michigan Campus Compact! He is the first NMU student to ever be selected for this award!
