We hire students!
SI Leaders support learning by facilitating free, weekly, active learning in group sessions. SI Leaders are students who excelled in historically difficult courses and wish to work to help their peers be more motivated, confident, and successful in those same courses. SI Leaders model effective student habits and facilitate active learning in informal settings. Along the way, SI Leaders get paid for planning and professional development, gain more complex content knowledge, and develop stronger communication skills and networks.
All SI employees earn $9 an hour. SI Leaders work 9 hours a week. As early as the first semester of employment, there are opportunities to grow into leadership positions within the SI program. Committed and effective SI Leaders may eventually work up to 20 hours a week with increased responsibilities regarding peer mentorship and program support. Additionally, all SI Leaders get “priority registration” status at the University. The work of a SI Leader offers the opportunity to increase and internalize content knowledge, practice and improve facilitation and communication skills including public speaking, and gain faculty connections. Beyond the paycheck, members of the Academic Support team benefit from our office’s focus on learning outcomes and our commitment to developing undergraduate employees’ career readiness.
The online application is open for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020. Applications for summer and fall will be reviewed in March. After initial review, invitations will be sent to select applicants. Group interviews will be conducted March 19-26, 2020.
