The Center for Civic Engagement oversees the Federal Community Service Work-Study Program. The program allows students who have applied for need-based aid and are eligible for work-study the opportunity to fulfill their work-study commitment by serving with a local non-profit organization. Through the program, students form valuable partnerships and gain useful experience while working with local community organizations.
The Center for Civic Engagement works with leaders at local organizations to establish reponsibilities for work-study positions. Students are placed at community organizations by the Center based on community need, the student's course schedule and work-study allocation communicated by the Financial Aid Office. In addition to their weekly schedule at their community partner, students also meet monthly as a group on campus, covering a variety of skill-building topics and building community.
At the beginning of each semester, students are assigned to the Federal Community Service Work-Study program. Contact Christa Leimbach, for more information or with any questions.
