Current and Former CEAP Ambassadors

CEAP 2022-2023 Cohort 

Introducing the new Community Engagement Ambassador Program cohort for the 2022 - 2023 academic year! 

Destiny Kluck '25 (Partnerships & Campus Outreach) 

Hi, I'm Destiny Kluck! I am excited to be working with the Brandeis Community and Partners to share our passion for helping others. I am ambitiously involved in many communities on campus including Posse, Paradis Research Lab, Adagio Dance Ensemble, and dance clubs! I was recently a Rich Collins Fellow with an intention to help connect the adoptive-foster care community of Waltham to Brandeis. I personally recognize that relationships and trust are the foundations of the past, present, and future of service. I will apply my resources as a CEAP ambassador to be a cultural broker among the many positionalities on campus. I am here to help, so please reach out!

Jolecia Saunderson '24 (Advocacy & Civic Engagement) 

Hi, my name is Jolecia Saunderson. I am a rising junior double majoring in African & African American Studies and Politics with minors in Creativity the Arts & Social Transformation and Legal Studies. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. At Brandeis, I have engaged with volunteer work through the new volunteer cohort program Roses in Concrete as well as being a 2021-2022 Rich/Collins Community and Impact Fellow through innovating a project called Pushout and Peacebuilding. My passions for the law, educational justice, art, activism, and social policy have led me to create pathways of change for communities in need. Through my work with community service, I have learned the importance and power of connecting with and empowering others. Furthermore, engaging with others around us by giving them the correct visibility and access to resources allows them to truly feel supported. In addition to this role, I am also a student worker at Chums and the Game Room, a part of the Woman of Color Alliance, and in the process of creating: The Multicultural Hair, Art, & Empowerment Club. I am grateful and excited to join my CEAP team and to work collaboratively to advance the goals of the Brandeis community!

Charlotte Li '24 (Training & Volunteer Retention) 

Hi, my name is Charlotte Li and I am a sophomore from Acton, Massachusetts. I am double majoring in Biology and HSSP and minoring in Chemistry. At Brandeis, I am a Waltham Group Coordinator for Companions 2 Elders. I am so excited to join the CEAP 2022-2023 team and work collaboratively with my cohort to meet the needs of the Brandeis community! Feel free to ask me about my role as CA, being on the women’s soccer team, how to get involved in research on campus, how to start a new club on campus, my role in Waltham Group, or my baking and cooking skills!

Nadia Romanazzi '23 (Assessment & Coalition Building)

Hi! My name is Nadia Romanazzi, and I am a junior from the Greater Philadelphia Area. I am double majoring in Psychology and International Global Studies and minoring in Economics. Since my first semester here at Brandeis, I have been a volunteer for Waltham Group’s Prospect Hill Kids’ Club and SPECTRUM, where I do one-on-one tutoring. Outside of Waltham Group, I am also a tour guide and intern with an organization, (We Are Better Together: Warren Daniel Hairston Project) who works with women and girls who have been impacted by community harm in Boston. This space has really emphasized the impact a strong community can have on both the individual and local scale, but the global one as well. I am so excited about being part of the 2022-2023 CEAP team and ready to connect and partner with other individuals and groups on campus to help better meet everyone’s needs, and thus build an even stronger community!

CEAP 2021-2022 Cohort

The fourth cohort of CEAP continued to increase the Department of Community Service’s organizational capacity, allowing us to better serve Brandeis University and the City of Waltham, our neighbor and partner. This team was a key player in transitioning students, faculty and staff to a brand-new campus-wide community engagement platform called EngageDeis. CEAP was also pivotal in the launching of a pilot initiative known as RISE (Resources in Supporting Engagement), and educating our campus and community on the ways this program can foster collaborations, uplift advocacy efforts and elevate our collective social impact and community engagement.

CEAP 2020-2021 Cohort

In its third year, the Community Engagement Ambassador Program has continued to be a positive force on campus. Despite the ongoing challenges of the international pandemic, our third cohort of Community Engagement Ambassadors made a transformative impact through their work this year, with a strong focus on community building, voter and democratic engagement, and assessment and impact.

CEAP 2019-2020 Cohort

During the 2019-2020 academic year, the second cohort of Community Engagement Ambassadors have been working towards its shared mission of being innovators to improve the symbiotic relationships between Brandeis, Waltham, and global communities. This is achieved through making resources available and accessible, building awareness on campus about CEAP,  building connections between all service programs, and working to improve the quality of community engagement. 

CEAP 2018-2019 Cohort

In its pilot year, the four selected 2018-2019 Community Engagement Ambassadors served an integral role within the Department of Community Service. They each strengthened Brandeis’ overall community engagement impact through coordination across service clubs and campus and community partners.
