Job Description for Center for Political Participation Fellows

The mission of the Center for Political Participation (CPP) is to provide opportunities for civic learning and civic engagement at Allegheny College. To pursue this mission, the CPP coordinates the Law & Policy Program, which connects students with opportunities to attend public lectures, seminars, and workshops. The CPP also participates in civic engagement activities, such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts and is developing opportunities to participate in collaborative research.

Center for Political Participation Fellows provide vital support for operations of the Center and will report directly to the Director of the CPP. The responsibilities of CPP Fellows will include:

  • providing mentorship to students involved in the College’s Law & Policy Program
  • holding weekly office hours to meet with Law & Policy students and work on other CPP-related tasks
  • participating in civic engagement efforts (for example, voter registration and voter turnout).
  • organizing periodic town hall meetings about contemporary political issues and events, and assist with logistics related to visiting speakers the CPP hosts on campus
  • contributing to faculty-student collaborative research on political participation (this could include survey/interview design, data collection, data analysis, and writing short reports)
  • Willingness to learn research skills is important
  • Experience with research is welcome, but not required

CPP fellows will perform up to 10 hours of work per week, including a regular weekly meeting at 12:15pm on Wednesdays.

The CPP is currently seeking to fill two positions. The selection process will involve completing an online application and in-person interview.
