Opportunities at CEES

FALL 2020 Opportunities for Undergraduates 

IUPUI STUDENTS: Community Engagement Associates

The Center for Earth and Environmental Science at IUPUI is looking for IUPUI students (two undergraduates) interested in a mentorship in service learning.  These positions are funded through a grant from the Center for Service and Learning and require an average time comittment of 10 hours per week.  

CEES is an environmental research center that also engages in education outreach and environmental stewardship.  Community Engagement Associates (CEAs) work alongside CEES staff to facilitate the Center's mission in these three core areas (research, outreach, stewardship), with a special emphasis on fostering environmental stewardship within the IUPUI community.   

CEAs will assist with the Center's service learning program, as well as field and laboratory research at CEES.  CEAs may also work with community partners, delivering science education in a variety of community parks and gardens.  General outreach activities will resume when social distancing restrictions are lifted.  Candidates must be willing to engage in outdoor work, laboratory work, and administrative tasks related to the service learning program.  Candidates should have a good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel.  

Before a candidate can be offered a position they must submit to a background check provided by the university and meet the university’s requirements for programs that involve contact with children.  Service learning projects take place primarily on Fridays and Saturdays (and occasionally on Sundays) in Spring and Fall when weather (and social distancing guidelines) permit.  Fall 2020 service learning events will be virtual, but CEAs must be available to attend in-person events in the spring if conditions change.  The Center for Service and Learning requires that CEAs maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75.  Community Engagement Associates receive a stipend in the amount of $1500/semester.

To apply: please send resume and letter of interest to Dr. Victoria Schmalhofer at vrschmal@iupui.edu
