AmeriCorps Student Resource Centers

Ohio Campus Compact (OCC) has been selected by ServeOhio to sponsor AmeriCorps members at higher education member institutions throughout Ohio to develop a Student Resource Center program. In support of the mission of Ohio Campus Compact, the AmeriCorps Student Resource Center Coordinators will support the development and growth of the Student Resource Centers, an Ohio Campus Compact initiative, which is designed to support campuses in identifying and providing much-needed resources to students who experience barriers to their academic success. A student resource center is a physical location on a campus where students can openly and freely seek support for challenges they are facing. A center or “hub” will be a place where students will be connected with campus and community partners that are able to provide the access to resources that students need to address the issues they are facing. No issue that may cause a student to withdraw from a course or leave an institution without earning a college degree is too small. The Student Resource Center initiative will play an active role in supporting the needs of students and achieving course success and degree attainment.

Positions are available at the following higher education OCC member institutions in Ohio:
