Student Team Positions

There are several student teams connected to Community-Engaged Leadership that coordinate events and programs for campus and the local community. Taking on a student leader role is a great way to develop your leadership skills, continue learning, build your resume, make a difference, and network with staff and peers. Most student positions are year-long, with applications typically opening each spring semester.


These students coordinate and promote sponsored projects and events, facilitate presentations and reflection sessions, and engage the campus in awareness and social change activities. Members volunteer on various branches of involvement including Alternative Service Experiences, App State Voter Coalition, Blood Drive Committee and Days of Service Commitee!
