Mia_Viveiros_200x133.JPG

Mia Brum - Interim Project Coordinator- was born and raised in Bristol, RI.  She is a graduate of Rhode Island College with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work.  Her work background spans from working with families and the elderly population in the social work field, to recruitment and training of college students for a nationally known college internship program.  Her enjoyment working within higher education and the college age student population is what led her to pursue a career at Roger Williams University.  Mia has been with Roger Williams University as an administrative support for both the CPC and Feinstein Center for Service Learning programs since October 2016.  She enjoys her position and interacting with students from both programs on a daily basis and likes the fact that she was able to bring her experience in the social work field to her position at RWU.  In her spare time, Mia enjoys spending time with her two children Jackson 12 and Ella 7 and enjoys exploring what RI has to offer for them in terms of local festivals, playgrounds or any other new adventures that they can discover together.

Publications Team

Click to Open

The Publications Team connects the community with the classroom -- in other words, they publish the materials a partner/faulty member gives them after their project is completed and convert it into a CPC Book/Poster for the community to see. Besides publishing the materials, they are also responsible for updating the content on our website. Ultimately, their goal is to produce quality content for other possible future partners/faculty to see to urge them to begin a project.

Marketing/Public Relations Team

Click to Open

The Marketing Team is important out because they inform the community about what the CPC does as well as inspires them to also get involved in the process. How is this done? Through social media platforms and general CPC branding and promotion. For example, the Marketing Team distributes penguin stickers, our unofficial mascot, and shares new blog posts that talk about the latest news regarding the CPC. They are the CPC’s greatest supporters!

Design and Research Team

Click to Open

The Design and Research Team experiences first hand what community engagement really means. In other words, they complete individual projects and work directly with our partners. Students in the Design and Research team come from all different backgrounds and majors, but are all bound by one common interest: bettering the community as well as their academic experience in a semi-professional setting. Throughout the course of the school year, students working in this branch create a design for their intended partner and work in teams of 2 to 4 other students. Ultimately, students in the Design and Research Team learn the importance of collaboration as well as communication.
