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. The primary focus of the ECLC is outreach and communications.

Requirements:

Applications for openings for the Spring 2015 ECLC are being accepted on a rolling basis until Friday, January 16 at noon. Interviews (via Skype) begin during winter break. See "How to Apply" below for details. Applicants may be current first years, sophomores, juniors or seniors. 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 meets as a group eight times over the course of the  semester. Each ECLC member works on four two-week independent initiatives, selected from a number of options. At the end of the semester, each ECLC member produces a report on their work, including recommendations for next steps.

ECLC members receive a stipend of $250 per semester.
