Thank You to Our Graduating Student Team Members!

2020-21 Graduating Student Team Members

OCE would like to thank all of our graduating student team members for the 2020-21 academic year. Thank you all, for your hard work and dedication to OCE during this year. You will be missed!

Jaycee Brown

Voting Ambassador Team Leader

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Office of Community Engagement. I only wish that I had gotten involved with them sooner. Through my role as the Voting Ambassador’s Team Leader, I have been able to practice leadership and bring civic engagement to campus. The support I received from Erin was immensely important, and she made a space for me to examine my leadership styles and take on exciting challenges. I’m confident that this experience will follow me to my graduate school career at the University of Pittsburgh. I feel equipped to step into this next chapter and utilize the skills I’ve gained from working with OCE.”

Will Corley

Area Coordinator Team Leader, Communications Specialist

“My time at OCE has allowed me to make invaluable connections pushing the mission of the office forward. Building stronger relationships between our campus and community has been so fulfilling, and I know this office will continue to do meaningful work within the LOU community. As I move on to the next chapter of my life, I feel inspired by the work done here to support and love whichever community I find myself in next.”

Catherine Long

Area Coordinator

I have learned so much about how to connect with different communities this year through all areas of communication despite not ever being face-to-face due to COVID. I have loved working with the Office of Community Engagement and getting to work with all aspects of the Oxford community, helping make Oxford even stronger than I found it this year!

Gianna Schuetz

Area Coordinator

Working in the OCE allowed me to find deeper connections to the Oxford community during my final year of college. I honestly wish I could have gotten involved sooner! I have loved the opportunity to work with community organizations and utilize the student experience to help them make a positive effect. Over the past year, working in the OCE, I have gained a great sense of compassion for those around me and for the importance of engaging in one’s local community.

Carissa Chandler 

Graduate Assistant

Spending the past two years as a Graduate Assistant for the OCE has been inspiring and life changing! I am better because of the relationships that I have been able to make, and will always be thankful for this time in my life. Some aspects of the last year and a half have not been the easiest for our LOU and university communities, but through it all I could not have asked for a more supportive environment to have for an assistantship.
