Online Application

Please fill out the online application entirely. Applications and recommendation letters should be submitted by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. Applicants should sign up for an interview at the front desk of CCSJ; the interview sign-up sheet will be available at the beginning of the Spring 2013 semester. You will receive an email once it's available.

Interviews

Each candidate is responsible for scheduling a half-hour interview; the interview committee will consist of two CCSJ professional staff members and a current student staff member. Sign-ups for interview times will be available at the front desk in CCSJ (HU142) at the start of the Spring 2013 semester. You will receive an email once it's available. Interviews will take place from Thursday, January 24 through Friday, February 1.

You can prepare for your interview by thinking about social justice—how you would define it, why you are interested in it and what issues in particular attract your attention. You should also spend some time thinking about your service experiences—particularly the experiences you've had as a Loyola student—and the lessons you have learned through those experiences.  Also, consider how you would recruit a diverse group of volunteers and facilitate service experiences for your peers.

Recommendations

All applicants must submit two online recommendations to complete their application file. At least one of these should be completed by a member of the Loyola community (faculty, administrator, staff, etc). Recommendations should be submitted online once you have completed your application, and you will be notified once your recommendation letters have been submitted.
