Job Description

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC), a department within University College, is where students come to get the academic support they need to reach their highest level of academic excellence. We house three main programs to assist in that effort: Supplemental Instruction (SI) – a form of organized free group tutoring aimed at historically difficult courses to increase retention rates, Math and Science Center – another free program that allows students to drop in with math or science related questions, and College Study Skill support – provided in the form of coaching, 1-3 credit hour courses, and interactive presentations. This graduate assistant position will gain experience in organizing and leading tutor/SI Leader trainings, support in supervising / managing student leaders, provide academic coaching, and gaining experience in data collecting, reporting, and using student software systems.

The position would also allow for other opportunities such as teaching and presenting, but would not be a requirement. Though it is a plus to have some sort of a tutoring background, it is not necessary. Most important incoming skills would be: strong communication and organizational skills, strong desire to supervise undergraduate student leaders, and support general student population seeking academic support. All graduate assistants will receive extensive training and support to excel in this position. Because the AAC values inclusion, and works towards upholding frameworks grounded in equity and social justice, all graduate assistants will receive training in diversity and cultural competency throughout the duration of their assistantship.

Main responsibilities include:
¬ Opportunity to assist in organizing and facilitating student leader trainings
¬ Supervise / manage student leaders
¬ Provide constructive feedback to tutors / SI leaders through observation and one-on-ones
¬ Assisting in organizing and running bi-weekly Student Leader Meetings
¬ Assisting in marketing and promoting the Academic Achievement Center programs
¬ Collecting, reporting, and evaluating data on academic support programs use and impact
¬ Learn and assist in the operation and maintaining of relevant student-centered software
¬ Apply relevant theories to the practice of supplemental instruction (group learning), peer tutoring, and academic coaching
¬ Interact with professional staff from a diverse range of offices
