The CCE recently hired Wesleyan senior Brandon Cale to serve as the Community Partner Relations VISTA. During Cale’s year of VISTA work, he will develop an issues-based model for students working with various community partners. This model will look at various issues (i.e. housing, poverty, children, environment) and coordinate/develop site locations with partners at the local, regional, state, and national levels that are developmentally appropriate for WVWC students. Also during his year, Cale will assist with matching community partner needs with faculty course and research needs, and with various offices and organizations on campus for service-related projects and events.
