College Health Corps, Anoka-Ramsey Community College
The goal of this program is to increase low-income and underrepresented students’ access to health, wellness and non-academic supports by instituting a creative campaign to include the entire campus in responding to food insecurity. Building awareness around the resources available will establish the sustainability of the resource center and will ensure continued support to provide the necessary resources. Anoka-Ramsey Community College – Coon Rapids Campus is seeking a VISTA member to design a center on the campus that will positively influence student retention rates for low- income students and students of color. Retention of students in community college environments is typically measured by calculating the percent of students who remain enrolled in the fall of the next year following their initial enrollment (fall to fall) or who transfer to another college or university. ---This project is part of the College Health Corps (CHC) VISTA Program, operated by Minnesota Campus Compact. The CHC increases low-income individuals’ access to health care, health education, food, and basic needs through capacity building projects, including partnerships between higher education and community based organizations. Professional development focuses on health equity, the social determinants of health, and effective partnership development. --- ***Please also send cover letter and resume to supervisor. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.***
