Graduate Student Learning Coach at The Learning Center
The Learning Center seeks an enthusiastic, student-centered graduate student to join our staff as a Graduate Student Learning Coach. Graduate students in all UNC-Chapel Hill schools and departments may apply.
Coaching is a popular intervention, currently offered by Learning Center staff, that helps students develop the organizational, time management, and study skills they need as they learn to balance the responsibilities of college and face increased academic expectations. Coaching promotes action and the opportunity for students to grow in self-awareness. A Graduate Student Learning Coach will work one-on-one and in groups with undergraduate students who seek to improve their academic effectiveness. In addition, the Learning Coach will participate in training, contribute to staff meetings, and join in other Learning Center activities for 12 to 15 hours per week.
The Graduate Student Learning Coach will receive a $10,000 stipend for the academic year (fall and spring semester, plus training before fall 2013 semester begins).
Who should apply
You are eligible to apply if you will be enrolled full-time as a degree-seeking graduate student in residence at UNC-Chapel Hill during both fall 2013 and spring 2014 (It is o.k. if you are done with coursework and are enrolled in dissertation credit only.).
We encourage applications from graduate students who are student-centered and who have experience in fields related to education, counseling and psychology. Personal experience with coaching, or experience working with young adults is beneficial. We value having a diverse staff and welcome applications from people of every race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Selection will occur through a formal application and interview process.
