Working with SAW requires a commitment of 6-10 hours per week.  Individual schedules may vary each semester; however, we expect that this will be your primary paid campus job.  Do you have any other work commitments that might conflict with this expectation? 

All student staff members are eligible to work as assistants in the SAW Center and as classroom-based mentors.  Individual placements are decided each semester depending on Center needs, faculty requests, and student staff interest.  Are there particular topics, professors, or courses with which/whom you would be interested in working, should you be needed to mentor in a course?
