Concordia University Student Steps Up for Leadership and Service in Oregon
Concordia student Tiffany Keeton selected to join the Oregon Campus Compact Student Advisory Board
Oregon Campus Compact (ORCC) announces the 2012-2013 Student Advisory Board. Through competitive nominations, 21 students representing 14 campuses have been selected.
The board challenges those who believe students are disengaged and apathetic. They're a testament to the rising generation, who has shown up (in record numbers) to serve and prove through action that they're global citizens.
Today's college students exceed the volunteer rate of the adult population (Corporation for National and Community Service) and more than 70% participate in civic engagement activities (Association of American Colleges & Universities).
This movement has caught the attention of The White House, who has encouraged higher education to continue inspiring community development by their students, "not just because it's good for students, but because it's good for American democracy" (Why College Students Matter).
Student Advisory Board Member Tiffany Keeton from Concordia University says, "I'm really excited to be involved with ORCC to work with other students to make an impact across Oregon and to help bring together more students that are passionate about serving and making a difference where they live. I'm also excited to help show others that any person has the potential to make a significant impact whether they realize it or not, and to learn about the passions that motivate people to continue to serve."
ORCC is proud to welcome Tiffany Keeton on this year's board. Tiffany was chosen for outstanding leadership and commitment to service on campus. She will serve the board by informing the statewide narrative of service and coordinating projects across Oregon to inspire and support more civic engagement on campuses.
"This year's board has an extremely high level of passion, enthusiasm, and creativity. It's clear that these students are motivated by a desire to further collaboration in civic engagement and are determined to increase statewide student leadership. I'm inspired by our incredible potential and know we will accomplish amazing things!" says Tina Shantz, Student Advisory Board Coordinator.
ORCC is motivated by the belief that students have the power to change the world, ORCC drives higher education to organize student participation in civic life. As the only statewide organization working with private, public, four-year, and two-year institutions, we embrace our unique position to strengthen Oregon's narrative of student service and leadership.
