The Freshman Interest Group (FIG) and Transfer Interest Group (TrIG) program is looking for outstanding UW undergraduates to serve as FIG/TrIG Leaders for autumn 2013.
The program is looking for students from all departments who are UW-Seattle undergraduates with strong organizational skills (i.e., not over-committed), and a genuine interest in working with freshmen as they face the challenges and opportunities presented to them as new students. Having been in a FIG/TrIG as a freshman is not required.
As a FIG/TrIG Leader, students will develop a deeper connection to the University while developing helpful skills in public speaking, discussion facilitation, lesson plan development, and principles of instructional leadership. All of these skills will be utilized while instructing a class of 20-25 freshmen enrolled in General Studies 199.
Training will take place during spring quarter 2013. Special arrangements for summer training can be made for students studying abroad during spring quarter. FIG/TrIG Leaders are eligible to receive up to 6 credits for their commitments to the program, which includes both training for and teaching the General Studies 199 course in autumn quarter.
Applications are available at First Year Programs, 120 Mary Gates Hall, or online at www.fyp.washington.edu/figs.
The application deadline is Monday, February 4th by 5:00pm.
