The CSCE offers three opportunities to further develop leadership skills through the Student Leaders for the Common Good (SLCG) program, as well as offering two fellowships, which allow students to explore their values and vocational calling. These programs are designed to help students develop capacities necessary for becoming a “leader for a just and humane world."
Student Leaders for the Common Good: Year-long program offering students the opportunity to lead the various programs and projects offered through the Center. They receive ongoing coaching from CSCE staff, participate in biweekly leadership skills trainings and reflections, and attend two retreats.
Shinnyo-En Summer Fellowship for Vocational Exploration: 3-month paid fellowship designed to increase student capacity for community and campus leadership while also increasing their capacity to discern their vocational path.
Shinnyo Fellowship for Community Leadership: Year-long fellowship engaging two students per year in an integrated experience of direct service, community leadership, reflection, and ongoing professional development. Fellows create individualized learning plans that integrate these elements with their coursework and activities.
K-12 Academic Support Leadership Program: Work with the Seattle University Youth Initiative at Bailey-Gatzert Elementary School, Washington Middle School, or Garfield High School to support students’ learning. Work study positions available.
Advocacy Skills Trainings: This training helps participants develop a shared understanding of social justice advocacy, the dynamics of political power, advocacy methods and tactics, and community organizing strategies.
