The University Honors Program has an exciting opportunity to hire a 50% FTE graduate student assistant for Autumn 2022 – Spring 2023. We would appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about this opportunity – this is an excellent chance for a graduate student interested in higher education to learn more about the program processes!   

The University Honors Program is an innovative space 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 through participation in small classes with faculty from across campus and work across the university, and by challenging themselves and each other to take intellectual risks and commit to conscious global citizenship.

The primary responsibilities of the Honors Front Desk GSA include reception and administrative support, outreach/recruitment assistance, and support for all admissions processes.

A detailed position description can be found on the Handshake System under job #6480271.  

It has come to our attention that incoming graduate students aren’t able to access Handshake, so we’ve posted the job description and details for the Honors Front Desk GSA on the Honors website, along with the application form: https://honors.uw.edu/secure-netid/uw-honors-gsa-front-application/
