SWOSU’s Tiler Rose Named Newman Civic Fellow

Southwestern Oklahoma State University student Tiler Rose of Weatherford is one of 12 Oklahoma college students named 2018 Newman Civic Fellows by Campus Compact as part of a group of 286 students nationwide.  

Campus Compact is a Boston-based non-profit organization working to advance the public purposes of higher education. 

Rose is pursuing a double major in engineering technology and computer science. She is a member of SWOSU President’s Leadership Class IX and has been on the SWOSU President’s Honor Roll four times. She has served internships at the Kennedy Space Center and Gen. Thomas P. Stafford Air & Space Museum. She was named the Engineering Technology Outstanding Student of the Year in 2017.

Rose feels strongly about getting women involved in STEM fields. She is associated with organizations such as the Society of Women Engineers and the First Tech Challenge High School Robotics Competition. She has served as a counselor and instructor in past Tech Trek STEM camps for girls.

“Getting more women involved in technology and science will be a lifelong passion of mine and is something that I will continue to push especially when I am established in my future career,” Rose said.

The Newman Civic Fellowship, named for Campus Compact co-founder Frank Newman, is a one-year experience emphasizing personal, professional and civic growth. Through the fellowship, Campus Compact provides a variety of learning and networking opportunities, including a national conference of Newman Civic Fellows in partnership with the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. The fellowship also provides fellows with access to apply for exclusive scholarship and post-graduate opportunities.
