Subject: Support the Resource Center!

 

Hello,

The Resource Center is looking for volunteers and employees!  The Resource Center, a culmination of student advocacy and activism, provides a centralized space where students can learn about and advocate for diversity and inclusion at Wesleyan as well as in their own lives.  The Resource Center was created to improve the educational experience of students from underrepresented groups, lessen interpersonal violence on campus, promote greater campus harmony, foster better socioemotional health and wellness, and cultivate closer ties between faculty, students, staff, and alumnae/i at Wesleyan.

If you, or someone you know, may be interested in gaining some great community organizing skills while supporting the mission of the Resource Center, please consider applying to be a volunteer or employee with the center!  Student leaders are integral to the work of the Resource Center in actualizing its mission and goals. We offer students the opportunity to apply for several positions through a centralized process beginning with this application form.

The Resource Center is currently looking for student leaders and employees for the following positions (individual job descriptions can be found here):

  • Volunteers
  • Office Assistants (2-4 positions)
  • Marketing and Communications Interns (2-4 positions)
  • Dwight Greene '70 Intern (1 position)
  • Diversity and Community Engagement Interns (4-6 positions)

Complete this application either by the priority deadline of Friday October 13th or the final deadline of Tuesday, October 17th.  Review of applications will begin on the priority deadline of Friday, October 13th and one-on-one interviews will begin  on the week of October 16th and will be completed by October 20th.  Employment offers must be accepted or denied before the start of the 2nd quarter on October 25th.

Any questions or concerns about the positions can be answered by the Director of the Resource Center, Demetrius Colvin (dcolvin@wesleyan.edu).

Sincerely,

Demetrius Colvin
