Center for Civic Engagement
Student Leadership & Involvement
Student Leadership and Involvement (SLI) shapes campus culture through self-discovery, leadership development, collaboration, community building and social responsibility with a myriad of active learning opportunities, preparing students to be catalysts for a more equitable and caring world.
We believe that OSU students can change our communities and the world and universities need to provide opportunities for students to cultivate the capacity to do so. Within SLI, the Center for Civic Engagement’s (CCE) mission is to facilitate reciprocal community engaged learning experiences in order to build community capacity, promote shared knowledge, enhance students' leadership skills, and inspire positive change. In partnership with community-based organizations, the CCE is committed to providing direct service, advocacy, philanthropy, and other community-engaged learning opportunities that allow students to meet diverse community needs. CCE programs strive to inspire social responsibility and the CCE aspires for all OSU students and alumni to serve as catalysts for creating more equitable, healthy, and sustainable communities. Imagine a better world. Make it happen.
We are looking to hire and fill student staff positions for 2017–2018 academic year.

The CCE is looking for passionate, responsible, open-minded, and self-motivated students who want to enrich the diverse campus community.
