CIS Hiring 2016 Academic Success Mentors

The Center for International Students is now hiring academic success mentors for fall 2016.

ASMs provide academic guidance to international students. Each mentor is assigned five or six students to meet with individually each week for 30 minutes.  During these meetings, ASMs work with international students to familiarize them with the American system of education and Truman classroom expectations. ASMs support students in adjusting academically and socially to life at Truman.

Applicants should have a strong academic record, good interpersonal communication skills, independent problem solving abilities and the ability to work as a part of a team. Coursework in business and computer science is a plus, although students of all majors are encouraged to apply. This is a four-hour-per-week scholarship position including weekly mentor sessions and team meetings.

Visit the Center for International Students in Baldwin Hall 129 to fill out an application. The CIS is also hiring cultural integration leaders, office assistants and international ambassadors. For additional information, contact Julia Wolfe.
