The Student Advocacy Office is looking for talented freshmen, sophomores and juniors from all majors who are interested in mentoring first-year students at Roger Williams. A good Student Advocate candidate is caring, responsible and possesses a strong desire to give back to the community. Student Advocates gain valuable leadership skills, the ability to communicate with diverse populations, and learn how to solve complex problems that face new college students.
Two information sessions are scheduled for Monday, February 3, and Thursday, February 6, at 6 p.m. in CAS 162, along with two information tables in the Upper Commons on Tuesday, January 28, from 11-2 p.m., and Wednesday, January 29, from 4-7 p.m. All students interested are encouraged to attend one event to learn more and meet current Student Advocates. Faculty and staff are invited and highly encouraged to contact the Student Advocacy Office with names and contact information of students to nominate as good candidates for Student Advocate.
Those nominations and other questions can be directed to Morgan Cottrell, Assistant Director of Student Advocacy, at 254-2579 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are available for pick up in the Student Advocacy Office, first floor of the Administration Building. The due date for applications is Monday, February 17.
