Student Spotlight: Clayton Johansen
Today we would like to highlight one of our recent graduates, Clayton Johansen. We sat down with Clayton to reflect upon his time at the Community Partnerships Center (CPC).
First, would you like to introduce yourself, and your position here at Roger Williams – specifically at the Community Partnership Center (CPC)?
My name is Clayton and my official title was Content Manager. What that means is that I controlled the CPC website and Google Drive. I made sure everything was organized and that projects got where they needed to be.
What is the CPC?
The CPC is a great place on campus where students complete projects with businesses outside of the university and tie them back into their RWU classes.
Before we go any further, we’d like to know a bit more about you. Here are 10 quick-fire questions:
What are your hobbies? - Fishing & Golfing. Favorite Movie? - Deadpool Favorite Cartoon? - SpongeBob SquarePants Favorite TV show(s)? - Friends, Suits, Parks & Rec Favorite music genre?

How long have you been at the CPC?
I worked at the CPC for two years, and it’s been great. I have learned so much about both myself and community engagement that I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.
What is your favorite memory at the CPC? My favorite memory was definitely the Community Engagement Event that happened April 2019. My role for the event was to help organize all the behind-the-scenes tasks.
What would you like to say to a student considering taking a CPC class?
If you are considering a CPC class, do not hesitate to take one. Not only does it look great on a resume, but it also offers great experience, as well as, it’s a way to learn more about yourself while helping others.
What do you hope for the future of the CPC organization on campus? I hope that the CPC continues doing great things as well as, continuing its growth. I hope we can eventually work on projects in all areas of Massachusetts, as well as the areas we already cover.
Thanks for all your hard work these past few years, Clayton. We look forward to seeing what you do next!
