Profile

Cassie Price holds a B.A. in English literature with a minor in history from the College of William and Mary and has worked as an editor and writer. Before coming to the CCE in September 2007, she handled many aspects of the experiential-education curriculum for the University's Jepson School of Leadership Studies, forging some strong university-community partnerships in the process.

Cassie's greatest job satisfaction lies in helping students and faculty connect their academic interests and skills to their work in the community and in working collaboratively with community partners to effect positive change. In addition to her matchmaking role, she manages the Civic Fellowship Program and writes feature stories about UR students, faculty, and community partners. In her free time, Cassie enjoys reading, hiking, visiting the VMFA, and attending theater, dance, and music performances.

Community Service

Cassie is the staff adviser for two student organizations — FLA (Future Leaders of America) and the Youth Life Mentor Organization — and is an honorary member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. Her community engagement includes serving on the CIS community support teams at Henderson Middle School and Overby-Sheppard Elementary School; co-chairing the Community Resource Connections Committee for Northside Strong, a collective-impact initiative focused on improving overall health and well-being in Northside Richmond neighborhoods; and volunteering as an AMP! mentor at Henderson Middle School.
