Now Hiring Community-Engaged Fellows

The Center for Community Engagement & Service Learning (CCESL) is hiring students for the Community-Engaged Student Fellows program for the 2017-2018 academic year. Fellows earn an hourly wage and complete approximately 10 hours of service/week. A short description of responsibilities is below and the full job description can be accessed here. The priority deadline to apply is Monday, May 8th. Interviews will take place the week of May 15th for those selected. To apply, email a resume and cover letter to Cara DiEnno, Associate Director (

Fellow Responsibilities: Each fellow is assigned to an interdisciplinary issue area (e.g., sustainability, poverty) and charged with co-developing a plan to advance community-engaged work in this area in consultation with community and campus stakeholders as well as CCESL staff. Second, the fellows' cohort will serve as an interdisciplinary "think tank" working collectively to address campus and community identified needs in real time. Fellows serve as liaisons providing continuous communication between faculty and CCESL, sharing out ideas across disciplinary or issue lines to further the goals of the cohort. Last, fellows serve as community engagement ambassadors to their home departments, during university sponsored events and in general interactions with campus and community stakeholders.
