Student Leadership & Involvement
The Hubbard Center and campus organizations have many options for you to join groups and participate in projects and activities that interest you.
Student Success rests on being involved in student organizations, volunteer activities, and on-campus employment. The skills you gain are valuable experiences that help you after DePauw. Each year, the Hubbard Center hires students to be a part of the Center’s staff. The following is list of employment opportunities at the Hubbard Center and ways to be involved in student leadership experiences.
Coquillette Peer Consultants
You can take advantage of the opportunity to work with the Hubbard Center. By choosing to be a Coquillette Peer Adviser, you can help your peers prepare for internships and other professional opportunities, including developing their resume and cover letter. Off-Campus Study Peer Advisers help teach fellow students about the off-campus study opportunities, the benefits of these international experiences, and help facilitate the application process for students applying through DePauw and then their programs of choice.
The peer adviser positions are great opportunities to gain valuable work experience while also getting a chance to learn about many of the options available to you after you graduate. If you are interested in learning more, contact Neal McKinney for information.
The Hubbard Center also employs student assistants during the academic year to help in different areas. Work-study positions are eligible in Career Services and communications, among other areas. These opportunities can give you the chance to earn money on campus while gaining valuable experience working with the Center, which is dedicated to preparing students for life after graduation. You can work directly with programs that provide students with those skills that they need to excel in their lifelong endeavors.

Winter Term in Service Student Leaders
Created more than four decades ago, the Winter Term in Service program is one of DePauw's oldest and most popular programs. WTIS groups immerse themselves in the culture of their host communities, working alongside local people on much-needed construction projects, medical clinics, public health education, and many other important services for people in their host community. Student leaders have an integral role in facilitating program logistics, along with helping student participants contextualize their experiences, including connecting their activities and cultural immersion experience to their lives, and how this will influence their future.
Many students who participated in the Winter Term in service program describe their experience as the most profound event of their college years. You can learn more by visiting the Winter Term in Service page, and learn more about the upcoming trips by visiting Horizons.
Volunteerism at DePauw
Community engagement activities provide a great way to strengthen your skills and gain experience doing something you enjoy while benefiting the community at the same time. From participating in annual events such as the Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service to joining a DePauw Community Service organization, there are many different ways to get involved.
Clubs & Organizations
Many organizations at DePauw are available for students who are interested in many different pursuits. From organizations that provide insights about cultures in different parts of the world to groups dedicated for students interested in a particular sport or activity, you can join those groups that are of interest to you. Also, as DePauw is a small, liberal arts college, you frequently have the opportunity to get involved as much (or as little) as you want, including to take on leadership positions.
