Students from these California campuses were selected in January 2015 to participate in California Campus Compact's Community Engagement Student Fellowship (CESF) program, a 4-month initiative specifically designed to support student leaders advancing service, service-learning and community engagement at California Campus Compact member campuses throughout the state.

California State University, Chico: California State University, Chico’s Community-Engaged Student Fellow for fall 2018, will build on the exciting work of this spring’s Community-Engaged Student Fellows to continue and further shape the Town Hall 2.0 project. Town Hall 2.0 is a modified version of the Town Hall Meeting program at CSU, Chico with an added college-going component and modifications to the curriculum to fit with Salisbury High School, a continuation high school in Red Bluff, CA. After a terrifically successful pilot, we look forward to replicating and evaluating this public sphere pedagogy which emphasizes high-impact practices such as collaboration, research, and community-based learning.

California State University, Los Angeles: Campus Voting Project- In 2016, Cal State LA boosted its student voting rate from 50% in 2012 to 56% percent in 2016. We are looking for a fellow who can help our campus continue its commitment to civic engagement and democracy by promoting voter registration leading up to the 2018 mid-term elections. The Fellow will coordinate with on campus entities such as Associated Students Inc., the Pat Brown Institute, nonprofit organizations, the County Registrar, and faculty to promote registration and voter participation in classes and at special events.

The fellows will work as co-directors of the California Student Service Leaders conference--a new statewide conference that will convene student leaders around the shared responsibility of coordinating and supporting service opportunities for their peers in higher education settings. The Fellows will lead a team of student volunteers to coordinate and implement the event, including oversight of logistics, event volunteer coordination, organizing conference content, and marketing.

Loyola Marymount University: LMU’s proposal is for two community engagement student fellows to engage in direct service to 1) identify internship placement sites for students in a women’s and gender studies course; and, 2) implement a service program to reduce food waste through composting. The value added to the campus will be support for student interns and engagement between students and seniors around environmental sustainability. The community impact will be increased involvement of engaged learners in non-profits serving disadvantaged communities and the implementation of a composting project at a senior citizen residential complex.

Occidental College: The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) at Occidental College will engage two studentfellows who will enact the community engagement mission of the college through twoprojects: 1. The student fellow will assist in the continuation of a tutoring program at ReachOur Community Kids, a local non‐profit specializing in after school activities forneighborhood youth. 2. The student fellow will support the ongoing development of astudent‐led program where students mentor and foster relationships with children withspecial needs at local Elementary School, Delevan Drive.

San Jose State University: California Campus Compact-Community Engagement Student Fellows at San Jose StateUniversity (SJSU) will investigate and document the impact of community learning on alumni career development and civic involvement. The fellows will work together to conduct interviews with former community learning students who have obtained careers benefiting the public good. These interviews will result in a short educational outreach video, a qualitative research report and related presentations regarding the impact of community learning on career development. This work will provide our campus with documentation that supports our long standing commitment to community learning.

Sonoma State University: The SSU CACC CE Student Fellow will be an English or Communication Studies major doing an unpaid internship as a blogger. S/he will create and edit blog posts in support of the CCE’s efforts; create posts about events, community organizations and opportunities, and other community engagement topics; work closely with CCE student assistants, especially those working on updating our social media accounts and the website; and watch the work of our counterparts and community partners for ideas.

UC Berkeley: The Community Engagement Student Fellow will work with city and campus partners to identify experienced local arts educators and match them with cohorts of UC Berkeley student volunteers who will, in turn, teach the arts at local afterschool and community-based programs. The Fellow will collaborate with the arts educators to design a training/orientation and a series of mentoring sessions that will support student volunteers in thinking through community needs and designing responsive arts curriculum. The Fellow will also identify local nonprofit organizations and afterschool programs and will facilitate student placements and strong collaboration at each site.

UC San Diego: The UC San Diego Student Health Advocates are volunteer peer health educators that work to enhance the personal health of students and the collective health and well-being of the campus community through educational workshops, events, campaigns, and programs. These peer educators address topics such as nutrition, sexual health, stress, alcohol, physical activity, and more. Specific activities include: Educating other students about health issues and concerns through educational outreach programs on campus and in the community; Making presentations to students and the community about health issues; Participating in training fellow students; Attending meetings and workshops where information and ideas are exchanged; Improving communication, presentation and facilitation skills; Learning to be a confident leader among their peers.

University of Redlands: University of Redlands students are passionate about serving our neighborhood and community and they do it in several ways. One of the University’s largest programs is providing homework assistance to local children at no cost to their families through Jasper’s Corner Home Club. Homework help and tutoring services are in high demand in our area and many families are unable to afford academic assistance, and University students are serving to answer those needs. We have an on-campus location for free homework assistance, and 2 an off-campus locations at the First Baptist Church and the Redlands Community Center allowing our program to help more children in our community.
