The Morgan Academic Center is accepting applications for academic mentor positions throughout the 2016-17 academic year. Applicants must possess a (3.0) GPA or above and demonstrate the ability to work with at-risk student-athletes to develop and improve upon their study strategies, including but not limited to, goal setting, time management, organization, note-taking, reading, study and test preparation, self-monitoring, self-advocacy and critical thinking/problem-solving. Essentially, it is the academic mentor’s job to cultivate the “student” in the student-athlete. Additionally, responsibilities include scheduling individual appointments on a weekly basis, writing mentor reports, attending monthly meetings/trainings, and compliance with all policies/procedures. This position is limited to a maximum of (20) hours per week and is flexible to accommodate student schedules; however, hours are not guaranteed and may vary each week, including the possibility of evenings and Sundays. Current Penn State graduate students are preferred but qualified applicants with equivalent academic credentials and/or experience mentoring or teaching will be considered. To be considered for this position, application, cover letter and resume must be submitted online. Application materials will be accepted on an ongoing basis and reviewed as needs arise.
