Graduate student job opening: Honors Program admissions readers

The Honors Program is once again seeking to hire two graduate students for graduate student service appointments during Winter Quarter 2016. These positions offer a valuable hands-on opportunity to participate with higher education professionals in the review of undergraduate freshmen applications to the Honors Program for Autumn Quarter 2016. 

We would appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about this opportunity - it is an excellent chance for graduate students interested in higher education to learn more about the evaluation process.   

The University Honors Program is an innovative and collaborative community engaged in rigorous interdisciplinary exploration. Students can pursue Honors as a general education track, as an in-depth program within their majors, or as a combination of the two. They may apply as new freshmen, at the end of their first year, or once they've selected a major. We prepare our students to ask and answer bold questions about the challenges facing our ever-changing world. Our students participate in small classes with faculty from across campus and work across the university, challenging themselves and each other to take intellectual risks and commit to conscious global citizenship. 

A detailed position description can be found on the UW Hires System under Requisition #: 124978 - please note that it closes on 10/9/2015.
