We are looking for students to become Change Advocates! As part of AIM (Advocate, Invest and Mobilize), a new community engagement program, Change Advocates are students who are paid to go into the community to conduct engagement 1-12 hours per week. Change Advocates will: 


  1. Connect their academic knowledge to their community engagement experiences. 
  2. Engage with community partners and peers in a way that signifies respect and acceptance. 
  3. Articulate their skill development and the positive change created by their leadership roles throughout their community engagement experiences. 
  4. Interact with and respect all cultures, identities, and perspectives.


The AIM Program empowers students to actively participate in academic and co-curricular experience through a lens of community engagement, social justice, and civic responsibility. This inclusive community of learners will transform into resilient, ethical citizens and leaders, making meaningful contributions to their current and future communities.
