Now Hiring Students

**DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 21

The Team

The Student Access and Equity team supports campus and student engagement for students who are historically underrepresented in higher education and their allies. This team specifically centers college students who are first-generation, have low socioeconomic statuses, and students who are undocumented, including students protected by Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), or who are seeking or have pending asylum status. Working together as full-time staff, graduate assistants, and undergraduate staff, we work to enhance the student experience through services, programs, policy awareness, and educating the campus community.

UndocuAlly Trainer (4 positions available)

Position Overview
The UndocuAlly Training team (as a part of the Student Access and Equity area within CCEE) includes the ongoing development of an established training curriculum to advance awareness across and beyond campus about undocumented communities (experiences, policy, language, support). Each trainer brings their own skills and experiences, but the training team works together to deliver educational content and facilitate engaging activities for faculty, staff, students, and off-campus partners to advance support for the undocumented student community.

This team works directly with the Student Support Coordinator for Student Access and Equity that works primarily with undocumented student support. All trainers are accountable to and report to the Associate Director for Student Access and Equity.
