Civic Engagement employs students as program coordinators, office assistants, and van drivers. Students work individually, in pairs or on teams, both on- and off-campus on projects such as coordinating the America Reads/Counts Tutoring program or VITA.
Students can also participate in Community-Based Work Study, which gives them the opportunity to earn their financial aid awards through employment at off-campus community service agencies such as local non-profit organizations and schools.
With a strong commitment to student development, Civic Engagement works closely with student coordinators to create opportunities for learning and growth. Using a multi-faceted approach that involves direct supervision, trainings, workshops, reflection sessions, relevant conferences, and a peer network of support among fellow student coordinators, we create a vibrant learning community of staff and students.
