Want to make an impact in your community and aren’t sure where to begin? Schedule a consultation with Community Engagement & Leadership (CEL)! Our consultations allow you to meet with a CEL staff member to explore the causes you care about most while learning about strategies or pathways for social change. CEL utilizes the Pathways of Public Service and Civic Engagement framework to categorize opportunities for student engagement. The Pathways framework includes six approaches to public service and civic engagement that all can be leveraged to contribute to creating more thriving, caring, and just communities. The pathways overlap and it is common for people to work in more than one pathway or move between pathways over time.
The purpose of this survey is to provide you with an opportunity to explore social issues that are important to you and different ways of addressing these issues. Your results may serve to confirm what you already know about yourself and your interests. This tool will provide you with information about your public service preferences and interests while giving our staff the information that they need to connect you to local and regional opportunities that align with your interests. Your responses are anonymous!
Please add your OSU email at the end of the tool.
This consultation is with one of our staff members. During the meeting, our staff will discuss your survey results with you and will connect you with community and campus partners.
The six pathways included in our programs and services are:
