Andrew Seligsohn - President, Campus Compact

Dr. Andrew Seligsohn became the 5th president of Campus Compact in June 2014, bringing to the organization his extensive experience in bringing higher education together with communities to solve problems and improve lives from a wide range of roles, from faculty at a small liberal arts college to executive level administrator at large public and private universities.Immediately prior to his appointment to Campus Compact, Seligsohn served as Associate Chancellor for Civic Engagement and Strategic Planning at Rutgers University–Camden, where he worked across the campus to develop a framework for enhancing the impact of the school’s civic engagement efforts in a focused manner, and oversaw the comprehensive leveraging of resources to positively impact and integrate students and faculty with the community. His leadership at Rutgers–Camden was also integral in advancing college access and success for under-represented students by creating a home in the Office of Civic Engagement for the Hill Family Center for College Access and the Rutgers Future Scholars. Both programs provide support for first-generation students as they prepare for, apply to, and embark on post-secondary educational opportunities. Prior to Rutgers–Camden, Seligsohn was the Director of Civic Engagement Learning at Princeton University. He also served as a faculty member in the Department of Political Science at Hartwick College from 2001-2007, where he earned tenure and promotion to the rank of associate professor. Seligsohn holds a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. from Williams College. He also serves on the board of directors for several community organizations in the Trenton and Camden, NJ areas.
