Who Wants to Take On A New Fellow Role at the Taylor Center?

The Taylor Center will offer two new opportunities for Fellowship roles: a Design Thinking Fellowship and a Programs and Event Coordinator Fellowship.

I talked to Julia Lang, Senior Administrative Program Coordinator at the Taylor Center, to get a better idea of how she thinks these added roles will ease the transition from CELT-SI to the Taylor Center and what the Taylor Center is looking for in candidates.

As I’ve mentioned before, centralizing all SISE initiatives and programming in the Taylor Center will allow the freedom to expand academic and co-curricular offerings for students. Julia Lang explained that “the Student Fellows will play a central role in helping to create, develop, market, and implement workshops, and programs in social innovation, social entrepreneurship, and design thinking.” This coming year will be an especially exciting time to work on these events as the AshokaU Exchange will be held on campus this year, bringing 700 people from over 150 different universities across the nation!

Now what qualities must you have to shine in one of these roles? Because the center is growing at such a rapid pace, Julia Lang says “students must be comfortable working at a fast pace, have the initiative to thrive in a new and ambiguous environment, be highly organized, self-motivated, and enjoy working both individually and collaboratively as part of a diverse team.” Some other qualifications include current or prior experience in community service and leadership activities, working knowledge of campus cultures and departments, and a strong understanding of and passion for social innovation, social entrepreneurship, and/or design thinking.
