What is a Community Engaged Student Assistant?
Community Engaged Student Assistants support students, faculty, and community partners in four key areas:
Developing community partnerships with faculty;
Recruiting, placing, training and coordinating service-learners for courses;
Developing creative projects, applying technical expertise, and collecting research data;
Providing direct service/research to the community partner(s).
Why be a CESA?
Have a meaningful experience working with faculty and community members;
Hands-on opportunities utilizing your major to work with the local community;
Tuition awards available to help compensate for the work you perform.
If you're interested in working with a faculty member on a community-engaged project and are in need of assistance in forming a connection, email firstname.lastname@example.org and CCEL will be happy to meet with you. Otherwise, feel free to stop by LIB 211G or call 786-4062.
