2011-2012 Student Mentors | 3 Paid Positions

We are looking for three Junior or Senior students to serve as mentors to four students (each) from Fall to Spring of the 2011-2012 academic year. 

The Sophomore Mentoring Program is designed as a pilot test of a potential future program to increase the retention and level of engagement of our Sophomore students. The goals of the program include the following:
  • Increase student identification, investment, and integration within the major department
  • Engage sophomores academically and socially with department peers and faculty
  • Increase opportunities for sophomores to engage in learning opportunities within the major
  • Support the academic success of the students
  • Solidify major through career exploration and evaluation of the fit between the chosen major and the student
  • Provide job shadowing opportunities for sophomores
  • Increase the persistence and retention of sophomore students
  • Help sophomore students solidify an academic sense of purpose
As one of three mentors working in this program, you would play a primary role in how these goals are accomplished. Pay is $8.50-9.50 per hour for 25 hours of work per quarter. You can also choose to receive it in the form of a paycheck or a scholarship. And there may be some additional opportunities which arise out of this position based on some of the other special projects we're planning in the School of Business. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact John Razzouk in the School of Business. We are already beginning to hold interviews for these positions, so act quickly.
