Join the Summer Faculty Advising Team

This year the Academic Advising Center will have a limited number of advising stipends available for full-time faculty to aid in our summer freshmen and transfer student registration. Both new and veteran faculty are eligible. We are encouraged by Academic Affairs to have a mix of both new and experienced faculty on the summer team.
 
The positions call for a limited number of hours to be worked during the May-Aug. registration season for group sessions for Freshmen as well as individual appointments in the Academic Advising Center.
 
There will be 5 Freshman Advising and Registration Day programs—on May 29 and June 5, 12, 17, and 21 which will welcome 80 students each. These expanded programs will maintain our trademark of giving each student individual attention with an advisor while providing expanded orientation programming.

Individual advising appointments with new students are scheduled from May thru August. We will strive both to provide ample coverage throughout the summer while concentrating faculty advisor availability when students most need us. We will encourage flexibility to maximize opportunities for faculty advisors

This is an important faculty development opportunity. Not only will you get to welcome our incoming students with other engaged colleagues but you can learn the broader curriculum and general academic policies and procedures. Veterans of the Summer Advising Team are resources in their departments for general faculty advising.
