Summer orientation advisers sought
Faculty and instructional academic staff members are invited to apply to become 2005 summer orientation advisers. The positions are 37½ percent summer positions.

Training sessions will be held June 8-10, 2005. Fifteen one-day sessions will be held during the first three weeks of the eight-week summer session, June 13-July 1, 2005. In addition, advisers will be involved in one-day orientation programs for new students in August 2005 and January 2006.

Individuals selected for these positions must be current members of the faculty or teaching academic staff who have a commitment to advising, a “track-record” of good advising, and a real interest in working with first-year students. Preference will be given to people who have assigned advisees within their departments and will continue to have advisees during the next year.

Applications are due Monday, Nov. 29. To obtain an application, contact Sarah Johnson at johnsarm@uwec.edu or 836-5053. For more information, contact Jacqueline Bonneville at bonnevjk@uwec.edu or 836-3487. Go to top of page
