Civic Engagement & Service

Service Fellows

Purpose

The Civic Engagement Board provides opportunities for University of South Florida students committed to service and community engagement. Comprised of student-led committees focused on a variety of social issues, this board coordinates accessible, fun, and meaningful service events and projects for on and off campus experiences. This board also serves as a bridge in building intentional relationships between nonprofits in the community and student organizations on campus. The Civic Engagement Board affords its members leadership experiences through responsibilities that include managing event logistics, community partner relationships, and campus outreach.

Vision
The Civic Engagement Board strives to ignite students' passion for service and exploring the root causes of the social issues that are impacting both the local and global communities.  

Mission
The Civic Engagement Board develops service learning opportunities for University of South Florida students, focusing on  social issues that impact the Tampa Bay community. Additionally, the team also provides USF students with 10 immersive Bulls Service Breaks opportunites. These experiences allow students to travel to different cities and work hand in hand with community members around social issues such as Poverty and Hunger, Quality Education and Human Trafficking. 
For more information about the Civic Engagement Board, please contact CLCE Assistant Director, Justin Fitzgerald, at jtfitzgerald@usf.edu.

Each spring, we actively recruit for a board director, team coordinators, chairs, and committee members. During that time, you can search "Service Fellows Application" on www.usf.edu/BullSync using Chrome or Firefox.
