Summer 2021 Job Descriptions and Minimum Requirements

We have modified Bulldog Scholars Academy summer 2021 programming to meet social distancing requirements. The Academy will be broken into two 2-week sessions, with limited enrollment, and assist first-year students with their transition into college. To maximize impact, we will merge Bulldog Scholars Academy with Operation Navigation, which matches freshmen with big brothers/sisters. This year, Navigators will participate in intensive leadership training June 28-July 9. A limited number of Navigators will serve as mentors during session 1 and/or 2 of the Academy. Navigators who are not working for the Academy will reach out to incoming freshmen to ensure that they feel connected to the campus and experience a seamless transition into the university. Navigators will continue walking with a small group of students during the 2021/2022 academic year. These are paid positions. We are currently considering applications for Navigators. Please click on the yellow button below to read the job description and minimum qualifications before submitting your application:


***Please note, credit accumulation requirements are based on summer 2021 status. Applicants who expect to have 30 credits by the end of the spring term are eligible to apply for tutoring positions. Likewise, applicants who expect to earn 45 credits by the end of the spring 2021 term are eligible to apply for mentoring positions. GPA requirements are based on fall 2020 grades.***
