Student leadership opportunties

CSSH invites you to become a student leader. Share your Northeastern story with other students by applying to one or more of the following leadership positions:


CSSH Peer Mentors are upper-class students who work with 4-8 incoming first-year students that share the same major. They check-in with their mentees throughout the semester, invite/attend events with them, and share their advice, stories, and experiences.

 CSSH Circle Program Assistants (PAs) play a key role in guiding first year international students with adjustment to life at a US university. Each PA is teamed up with several new international students. Throughout the semester assistants are provided a budget to organize 1-3 events along with their Circle teams. There are also opportunities to develop skills by taking on roles in Social Media, Event Planning, Outreach, and Peer Training.

CSSH coordinates Teaching Assistant opportunities for two courses taught by Co-op Coordinators and Academic Advisors. One is EESH2000 Professional Development for Co-op, the 1 credit course students take to prepare for co-op. The other is INSH1000 Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern, the 1 credit course students take when they start on Northeastern’s campus in a spring term.

The CSSH Ambassadors work to highlight and publicize areas of student/faculty research, experiential education, and global opportunities through programming and outreach initiatives to increase visibility of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern University.
