Graduate students serving as CSJ GAs participate in an academic year-long professional development program in “Engaged Scholarship.” GAs have meetings once a month as a cohort to develop additional skills around ethical community engagement, social justice leadership, engaged scholarship, and program/project management. The program includes mentorship and opportunities for additional professional development.
