Join Our Team

Coordinators are a very important part of CASA’s leadership team, and play a strong role in creating and executing the programs and logistics of all CASA events. We welcome all Cal students to apply from across various years and academic departments!

Coordinators can expect to learn general professional skills working in a large organization as well as specific departmental skills depending on division and previous experience. All applicants are encouraged to reflect on their previous experience as well as teamwork and collaboration skills when applying. We have an open and inclusive culture, where we encourage members to learn and grow from each other.

The Spring 2019 application is now closed.
