As a Lasallian Catholic university based in both Winona and the Twin Cities, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota seeks to provide an excellent educational experience while upholding respect for the dignity of all individuals, building inclusive, participatory community through ecumenical and inter-religious openness, being in solidarity with the poor, and advocating for those suffering from injustices. Our Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs (SGPP), in the heart of the Phillips-West neighborhood in Minneapolis, offers programs to adult students. We are committed to addressing present-day challenges by striving to remain affordable for students and through distinctiveness in structure. Many of our students and those in the surrounding community face struggles related to accessing resources to meet basic needs. The VISTA would help us address these challenges by increasing access to services and resources. This includes developing a resource guide, establishing partnerships to ensure low-income student and community members receive access to services, and hosting two resources fairs and onsite clinics for low-income students and community members to meet with providers and apply for cash assistance, health insurance, food support, utility assistance, and other services. ---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.

CHIP supports students in health professional programs (e.g. Medicine, Pharmacy, Public Health) through advising and engagement for student leaders, support for student-parents, and developing and implementing co-curricular interprofessional education experiences. CUHCC is a FQHC with the mission, "Transforming Care and Education to Advance Health Equity." They offer medical, dental, and mental health services to patients from over 12 different racial and ethnic groups that span five continents. This project has three key goals: 1) Build capacity at CUHCC to support a larger volunteer base to support program growth, such as wellness programs and outreach, 2) Establish a structure at CHIP to create a pathway for health professional students to engage as volunteers at CUHCC and other non-profit organizations, and 3) Create frameworks and structures within CHIP to better serve and support low-income students and students from backgrounds which are underrepresented in the healthcare fields. ---This project is part of the College Health Corps (CHC) VISTA Program, operated by Minnesota Campus Compact.
