Wren Fiocco ’20, an environmental studies and gender, sexuality, and feminist studies double major, was awarded a 2019 Newman Civic Fellowship. Fiocco will receive a year of training and learning opportunities focused on the skills needed to affect social change.

The Newman Civic Fellowship recognizes and supports students who are committed to community service and who are changemakers and public problem-solvers. Fellows come from Campus Compact member institutions and are nominated based on their potential for public leadership.

At Oberlin, Fiocco is involved with the El Centro Volunteer Initiative, Students for Energy Justice, Oberlin Students in Solidarity with Guatemala, the Resource Conservation Team, and the a capella group Nothing But Treble.

Fiocco intends to spend their life devoted to bringing about positive social change.

“After graduation, I anticipate being involved in work for social and environmental justice, whether it’s what I do for a living or if it's unpaid.”
