Honors from NC Campus Compact

The North Carolina Campus Compact, a network of 42 institutions of higher education, has honored Dr. Spoma Jovanovic and Chancellor Linda P. Brady for their leadership in community engagement and service.

Jovanovic (Communication Studies), seen in visual, received the Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award. Brady received the inaugural Leo M. Lambert Engaged Leader Award at the network’s 10th annual Civic Engagement Institute.

“Spoma’s award is well-deserved recognition of her talent for creating partnerships between our campus and our community,” Brady said. “Her work in the service-learning field was instrumental in the university’s decision to reward engaged scholarship in the promotion and tenure process.

“The Lambert Engaged Leader Award is a tribute to the dedication of faculty, students and staff to engagement in Greensboro and around the world. ‘Service’ has been UNCG’s motto since the institution was founded in 1891, and it remains as true today as it was then.”

A student wrote in Jovanovic’s nomination for the award, “She helps students see their true potential, valuing their role as a citizen within their communities, and the importance of democratic expression. She deserves this award because she has worked hard to awaken the leader in all of her students to make a difference.”

The conference also included a presentation about the Welfare Reform Liaison Project by Dr. Bob Wineburg and Rev. Odell Cleveland.
