The Morgan Academic Center is accepting applications for academic mentor positions throughout the 2019-20 academic year. This position requires an 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 appointments with assigned mentees 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/semester, including the possibility of evenings and Sundays. A minimum of an earned bachelor`s degree, or higher, is required along with a 3.0 GPA or above. 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.
