Student Leadership

Community engagement advocates are given a unique opportunity for students to engage in all aspects of developing and implementing programs for service-learning opportunities and experiential education. Students are recruited and trained to lead asset-based programs focused on youth and community development. These programs are designed to integrate academic service-learning and provide a student-led approach to transforming communities both on and off campus. Student leaders are challenged to grow personally and professionally throughout their work by creating opportunities for fellow students and community members to see themselves as agents of meaningful social change.

Hiring for CEA positions begins in February for the following academic year. Please visit to learn more about available positions and the hiring process.
