The Student Success Center (SSC) invites applications for two Program Assistant positions for the 2024-2025 academic year (fall and spring). These positions are a great opportunity for individuals who are interested in expanding their experience with teaching, higher education administration, and/or program development.  One position is available with the PASS program, and one position is available with the STEM tutoring program. 

  • Position 1: This position focuses on helping us develop and implement our Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS) Program. The primary duties of the position include reviewing lesson plans drafted by students and providing feedback, observing PASS leaders and providing feedback on performance, and developing and leading training for student-staff.
    • The PASS Program Assistant position is a full Teaching Assistantship (20 hours a week). The position carries a monthly stipend (approx. $2,700 per month for the 9-month academic year), 100% tuition remission, and a health subsidy in accordance with the current TUGSA contract.
  • Position 2: This position focuses on helping us develop and implement professional development programs for the STEM tutoring service. Primary duties of the position include observing and providing feedback to new and veteran tutors, developing and leading workshops for tutors, and assisting with broader research and program development projects.
    • The STEM Program Assistant position will be either a full or half-time Teaching Assistantship (20 hours or 10 hours a week, respectively). Depending on whether the position is full or half, the position carries a monthly stipend (approx. $2,700 or $1350 per month for the 9-month academic year, respectively), tuition remission (100% or 50%, respectively), and a health subsidy in accordance with the current TUGSA contract.

The work hours for both positions are flexible and can be scheduled around other obligations. The positions require occasional night hours each month. You can apply for both positions at the same time on the application form or opt to be considered for only one position.
