Student Fellows of the Stockton Center for Community Engagement are the leaders of our homegrown community programs. They are undergraduate or graduate students with excellent organizational skills, and a desire to serve and explore a specific community and/or issue more intensely. They examine the underlying causes of social issues and work with the Center to try to adapt our programming to address the need. Student Fellows also collect and, with the support of the Community Projects Coordinator, analyze data about our programs so that we can best direct our efforts.
Fellows are recruited each semester on the recommendation of a faculty and/or staff member. If you are interested in becoming a Student Fellow of the Stockton Center for Community Engagement please click this link for an initial application.
