Student Organizations Consultants work with the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and a Student Affairs Fellow to support undergraduate student organizations.
Each consultant is assigned a caseload of 30 to 40 student organizations, organized by categories, that they assist over the course of the academic year. Group choice will depend on the consultant’s previous experience, skills, personal preference, and the office’s needs. In addition to serving as the main contact for their student organizations, Consultants will also work on projects defined by the Student Affairs Fellow, with the goal of creating a robust support system for student organizations.
Consultants should be highly organized, great communicators, and consistently proactive. They should be eager to collaborate with a wide range of personalities.
