Coming Soon: Faculty Leadership Role
Kate Figiel-Miller, Assistant Director of Service-Learning

Kate helps develop partnership and provide logistical and technical support for service-learning courses and other forms of community engagement.  Sometimes she is able to be a “matchmaker” who brings together faculty and community for new service-learning partnerships.  

Jake Petrini, Class of 2016, Service Coordinator for Service-Learning

Jake serves as the liaison and coordinator between service-learning students and community partners at two sites, Govans and Tunbridge.  He also assists with service-learning promotion and social media. 

Katie Despeaux, Class of 2016, Service-Learning Graduate Assistant

Katie runs the numbers and keeps us organized.  She tracks service-learning courses, updates the website, and administers and analyzes our assessments, including end-of-the-semester service-learning course surveys. Katie also provides support for other projects.

Our team also includes many other members of the CCSJ student staff team!  Service Coordinators with a number of partners work with service-learners serving at their sites, helping them figure out when and how to get to service, and how to get the most from their service-learning experience.
