Current fellows, do you have a change to report, such moving to a different cohort, increasing your hours, going off-campus, etc? Filling out this form will make sure all current fellows have one-card access to the CCCE, are on all the right email lists, posters, etc.
Fall Fellows Training 2022: Training will take place on campus from Tuesday, Sept. 6 – Saturday, Sept. 10. Please return to campus by the evening of Monday, Sept. 5. More information about the training schedule and pre-work will be sent out in August.
Fellows in the Center for Community and Civic Engagement (CCCE) directly and indirectly support
- reciprocal and ethical partnerships with off-campus communities by building, developing, and maintaining mutually beneficial collaborations;
- the work of program directors (PDs) and volunteers for programs in their respective issue areas, helping to maintain high quality programming for multiple off-campus communities;
- work off-campus at program sites, mainly in Northfield and Faribault; and
- events and initiatives on campus and in the community, ranging from speakers to film showings, from community conversations to elected official candidate forums.
All fellows are part of one (or sometimes two) of the below cohorts:
- Academic Civic Engagement supports course-based learning about social movements and community engagement with a focus on ethical, effective collaboration with community knowledge holders.
- Communications coordinates the publicity and marketing of programs, emerging opportunities, community-engaged speakers, and other events as well as publishes the CCCE newsletter each term.
- Education Equity focuses on students in the Northfield and Faribault public school districts as both districts strive to improve the equity of their schools in the context of rapidly changing demographics and the welcoming of thousands of new residents.
- Food and Environmental Justice supports programs that engage students in environmental issues tied to community wellbeing and sustainability, recognizing that food production, waste, energy, and food insecurity are all intertwined and envisioning a world of equitable environmental access and responsible stewardship.
- Health and Belonging strives to connect students with community partners to improve the community’s health as well as bring education about pertinent health and well-being topics to campus.
- Peace, Conflict, and Democracy seeks to engender conversation about the root causes of inequality, injustice and violence by addressing current local and global issues through lectures, community conversations, film screenings, podcast listening and discussion sessions.
Fellows work independently and collaboratively with each other, other campus organizations, and community partners. All fellows work weekly office hours in the CCCE, attend regular fellows staff meetings, and contribute to the community environment in the CCCE. Students who are approved campus drivers and with Spanish, Somali, or other language skills are strongly encouraged to apply.
