CCE Fellows

Advance Civic Engagement

Seeking CCE Fellows

The Center for Civic Engagement is seeking outstanding student leaders to serve as CCE Fellows in 2021-2022. CCE Fellows serve as peer leaders, liaisons between the Center and the student body, and student staff for CCE programs. This yearlong, paid position offers the opportunity to:

  • Support the Center’s core programs, including AMPED, the Civic Engagement Certificate Program, Engage Chicago, Jumpstart, and NU Votes.
  • Connect Northwestern students with civic and community engagement opportunities on campus and in Evanston and Chicago.
  • Organize and facilitate service-learning projects, community engagement experiences, voter education and participation efforts, and more.


CCE Fellows receive training on civic and community engagement, collaborate alongside staff and faculty, and contribute to a culture of informed, active participation in civic life. In the process, Fellows develop concrete skills, including communication and presentation skills, organizing, and project management. Fellows work an average of 5 hours/week, and are paid $13/hour, regardless of work-study eligibility.

  • Note: As the University anticipates a return to in-person operations in the coming year (to the extent that public health guidance will allow), we anticipate that CCE and the Fellows role will return to in-person operations as well, though some programs or functions may remain remote or hybrid. Of course, these plans are subject to University and public health constraints, and may change over the course of the year.
