The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) at WSU promotes student learning through engagement in community service, service learning, advocacy, public education and civic leadership. Student civic engagement includes the exploration of "self in society" through enhanced self-awareness, knowledge of community issues and development of civic responsibility. The CCE is a resource for students seeking to make stronger connections with community and faculty seeking to incorporate community-based learning and civic development into the academic curriculum. Established partnerships with local, regional, national and international organizations provide students with diverse opportunities for learning the skills necessary to make positive changes in the world.
How to Apply
Openings are typically advertised at the end of the academic year in spring, but openings are posted throughout the year as they become available. Check this page for updates and openings if you are interested in applying to work at the CCE. All student staff must be eligible for financial aid work study and attend a fall and spring training with the CCE.
Undergraduates interested in applying for a position should apply through CougLink, the WSU employment opportunities website. Login using your network ID and password (same as for Zzusis), and then select "WSU CougLink" from the dropdown menu under "Jobs". Search "civic engagement" in quotes to find all open CCE positions.
Graduate assistant candidates should email Ben Calabretta, Assistant Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive open position descriptions. Then applications should submit a cover letter, resume, and three references with contact information to Ben Calabretta. GA positions include a tuition waiver, stipend, and health insurance.
Positions are filled on a rolling basis, so be sure to apply early. This is a great opportunity for both undergraduates and graduates to help make a difference in the community while developing professional experience, so we hope to see your application soon.
