William Jewell College received the Excellence in Student Recruitment Award at the American Humanics Management Institute (AHMI), held January 3-6 in Washington, D.C. The Excellence in Student Recruitment Award is presented to the AH Student Association that is most effective at recruiting new members to join their chapter through effective and innovative methods of recruitment.

During 2006, William Jewell recruited 30 new students to their program, an increase of 57%. The college was also officially recognized for being named on the first annual President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, which responds to President Bush’s call to service by building on and supporting the civic engagement mission of our nation’s colleges and universities. William Jewell College has been a leader among American Humanics’ 74 campus affiliates, and their American Humanics program continues to grow.

More than 580 American Humanics students and faculty, as well as more than 300 nonprofit and corporate leaders, took part in the conference, which provided an opportunity to network with nonprofit executives, participate in simulated case studies and a national collegiate dialogue, and attend workshops led by local and national experts in nonprofit management. William Jewell was represented by Campus Executive Director Kevin Shaffstall of Kansas City, Mo., and the following student participants: Betsy Bramon, Columbia, Mo.; Joel Bryce, Kansas City, Mo.; Tiffany Fu, Kansas City, North; Joanna Hilton, Lee’s Summit, Mo.; Allison Kirby, Kearney, Mo.; Sarah McMillian, Smithville, Mo.; Marilyn Minter, Arlington, Texas; Rachel Sheffield, Maryland Heights, Mo.; Laura Sustad, Arvada, Colo.; and Erin Thess, California, Mo.

William Jewell College president Dr. David Sallee serves on the American Humanics National Board of Directors. He is also a co-chair for the 2008 Management Institute, which will be held in Kansas City.

The purpose of the annual Management Institute is to expose junior- and senior-level college students to experiences they will encounter as nonprofit professionals. This educational symposium is considered the capstone professional development experience for students enrolled in the American Humanics nonprofit management and leadership program. It is held annually during the first week in January and rotates to a different city each year.

Keynote speakers at this year’s conference included David Eisner, CEO, the Corporation for National and Community Service; Diana Aviv, President and CEO, Independent Sector; and Ralph Smith, Executive Vice President, the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

American Humanics is a national alliance of colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations that prepares and certifies college students for professional careers in youth and human service agencies. American Humanics is affiliated with more than 70 colleges and universities nationwide including William Jewell College, and partners with more than 50 national nonprofit organizations including the YMCA, the March of Dimes and the Boy Scouts of America.
