Student Leaders

In OCES, we are guided above all by one framework--education for democracy. As much as possible, the principles of democracy govern our interactions with students and each other. Our office is an experiential classroom that teaches public leadership (and how to have fun while working hard). Thus, in OCES, student ideas and input are treated with equal weight as that of staff.

OCES Student Leaders learn and practice professionalism, civility, teamwork, and shared decision-making while gaining confidence in themselves as community engagement practitioners. Read more about Student Leader positions below and visit Meet Our Team to read about who’s on our staff currently.

Program Management Interns 

Program Management Interns carry out a variety of programs and events. Each student serves as point person in the coordination of at least one major program, event or initiative based on their interest and skills. Student coordinated programs include Alternative Spring Break, Panel Discussions, Documentary Film Screenings, Service Saturdays, and Interfaith Day of Service.

Social Media & Marketing Interns 

This team of interns works to promote community engagement opportunities, events and programs via online media. They also develop promotional materials for the office and generally assist with OCES programs and events. Student-coordinated media include our weekly newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.

Graphic Design Interns 

Graphic Design interns work with us in developing a consistent and professional brand identity, increasing the office’s institutional profile, and shaping the look and feel of its programs and offerings.

America Reads/America Counts Coordinators

Three undergraduate students with previous experience as an America Reads/America Counts tutor help to coordinate the program each year. They not only supervise and serve as a resource to current tutors, but also facilitate tutor training sessions and help ensure that campus-community partnerships are running smoothly.

Vote Everywhere Ambassadors

As a part of civic engagement efforts on campus, we have two Miami students who organizes voter registration efforts, plans and facilitates civic engagement workshops and generally works to engage students in the political process. Vote Everywhere is a program of the Andrew Goodman Foundation, whose aim is to bring down voting barriers and tackle important social justice issues on college campuses nationwide.
