Civic Engagement only works if we are engaged with our students on a daily basis. Last year, we were able to, in large part to the people who volunteered countless hours, engage, involve, and educate students by being a presence on campus. Without committed volunteers, we would not have been able to do our job.
What did we take away from our success? “We could do even BETTER.” This is where you come in.
We’re sending out a call to anyone who can commit any amount of time with our projects, programs, events, and any other crazy idea we come up with. We want you to engage your peers through education, giving the entire campus an opportunity to learn more about what will influence their future.
So, how can you help us? We made it easy. Join our Street Team!
The Street Team is a vehicle for members to pursue and make changes as well as to help advocate for civic education as an important part of student life at SUNY Oswego. Members will play a major role in promotion of events that it puts together in conjunction with the Coordinator of Civic Engagement, the Civic Engagement Graduate Assistant, and the Civic Engagement Coalition. The Street Team will also help in the recruitment of new members to help grow our numbers and expand our possibilities. Finally, members of the street team will be an important part to the Civic Engagement Coalition. Members will be invited to participate in monthly meetings and are encouraged to share ideas and suggestions from a student’s perspective.
Similar to the Coalition, this team will be a unification of students from across all academic disciplines, such as Education, Graphic Design, and Art, to History, Math, and Computer Science. The more diversified our team, the more perspective we will have in putting together successful campaigns and events.
We hope you will consider joining our team in our effort to expand what we are capable of doing at SUNY Oswego. If you want to know more about what the Street Team is all about, click the Civic Engagement Street Team link above to see the manual and brochure.
