Liaisons are like the yolk – the binding agent – that thickens a sauce and makes it what it is intended to be. Without them, a service experience, like a sauce without a yolk, are just ingredients in a bowl.
-Dr. Ed Peck, speaking to CSSA Student Liaisons in September 2015

The Center for Service and Social Action provides weekly service and one time service opportunities for John Carroll University students with more than 75 community partners throughout the greater Cleveland area. To facilitate these service opportunities, the CSSA office hires work study students to serve as Student Liaisons. As a CSSA representative, Student Liaisons serve as leaders to facilitate a positive service experience for their fellow JCU students.
