Scott Andrews, University of Rhode Island, RI

Scott Andrews, a junior Political Science major at the University of Rhode Island, is deeply involved in addressing two main issues: affordable housing and increasing youth participation in politics. He is an active citizen who understands that in order to address the root cause of an issue you must first pay attention to what is happening around us. Mr. Andrews works diligently to motivate his peers and others to become civically engaged in politics and service. He is a student leader in several student organizations and has participated on two Alternative Spring Break trips to the gulf coast.

Thanks to Campus Compact for all that you have done over the years to nurture the campus service and service-learning movement. When we started at St. A's 15 years ago there was a feeling among some campuses that we were seeing higher education's latest 'flash in the pan.' Instead it was the beginning of a revolution of ideas and relationships, and you guys have been fueling us all the way."
