Ethics Center Leadership Council
A "Social Justice Street Team"
The Ethics Center Leadership Council (ECLC) is composed of three undergraduate students who work together and independently to build engagement with and awareness of the Center’s resources; reach out to students, faculty and staff at Brandeis and to people at other schools and organizations; and promote and enhance interactive conversations about topics concerning social justice on campus through various means.
Applicants must be current first years, sophomores or juniors. We are seeking students who can work independently and collaborate, and are interested in some or all of the Ethics Center's areas of work. (Interest and excitement is more important than experience.)
The ECLC will meet as a group eight times over the course of the fall semester. Each ECLC member will work on four two-week independent initiatives, selected from a number of options. At the end of the semester, each ECLC member will produce a report on their work, including recommendations for next steps.
ECLC members receive a stipend of $250 per semester.
The ECLC was piloted in the spring 2011 semester and continues to the present. Read about the inaugural ECLC members here, the fall 2011/spring 2012 ECLC members here, the fall 2012 ECLC members here, and the spring 2013 ECLC members here.
How to Apply
The application deadline for the Fall 2013 ECLC is Monday, May 13 at noon. Complete the online application here and follow the instructions for submitting the required paper materials to the Ethics Center by that deadline as well.
