Civic Engagement Fellows

The Civic Engagement Fellows (Fellows) will assist with programming, recruitment, and outreach efforts. The Civic Engagement Fellows play an integral role in the development and operation of Institute for Civic and Community Engagement (ICCE). Each Civic Engagement Fellow is also a peer educator who is responsible for facilitating workshops on a variety of community topics. Students will be chosen based on their proven leadership experience, effectiveness in advocating for the community, and potential to contribute to the mission and goals of ICCE.
