With the start of another academic year, the Office of Civic and Community Engagement (OCCE) has several available opportunities for Wake Forest Students, including leadership positions both on campus and in the community.
Applications are currently open to serve as a member of the Winston-Salem College Advisory Board (Sept. 6), to become a student-leader on the OCCE Advisory Board (Sept. 16), or to participate at the 2019 BRANCHES Social Justice Retreat (Sept. 27).
The Winston-Salem College Advisory Board advises City Council regarding matters of interest to students enrolled in colleges and universities throughout Winston-Salem. Focus areas for the 2019-20 academic year include: Internship Advocacy, Survivor Resources, Intercollegiate Transit, and Civic Engagement.
The OCCE Advisory Board is looking for undergraduate- and graduate-student representatives to provide input and feedback on strategic directions; review policies, practices, and publications; serve as ambassadors for the Office; and to help identify potential partnerships, connections, and/or resources related to community-based initiatives for the 2019-20 academic year.
Explore issues of identity, including gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, and socio-economic status as a participant at BRANCHES. The retreat takes place during Fall Break (Oct. 10-13) in Black Mountain, N.C., and is free to attend. In order to participate, students must attend the entire retreat.
