SARC is looking for diverse, enthusiastic, dedicated, and hardworking students who enjoy helping fellow UCF students succeed academically and who can contribute to our programs and services with their unique skills and abilities.
SARC’s Academic Coaching and Engagement (ACE) Program offers a structured, collaborative approach to support the academic success of freshmen students placed on academic probation. Currently, SARC is hiring to fill two different roles: Academic Coaches and Office Assistant for the ACE Program.
Academic Coaches will provide guidance and ongoing feedback as they facilitate coaching sessions with assigned students during the fall semester. Each Academic Coach will be assigned a caseload of students and may also assist additional students who choose to participate in the ACE program on a voluntary basis. Academic Coaches will assist students with building college level academic strategies, time management skills, motivation, as well as adjustment and connection to the university.
The ACE Office Assistant will assist with scheduling Academic Coaching appointments, tracking completion of appointments, processing coaches’ student reports, calling students, as well as assist the ACE Coordinator with completing monthly reports.
Please Note: The individual selected for the Office Assistant position (which requires less than 10 hours/week) will also have the option to serve as an Academic Coach for additional hours if interested and qualified.
There is one application for both positions. The application deadline for this position is Thursday, July 19th by 5:00pm.
To apply for this position, please complete the following steps.
- Complete SARC’s ACE Academic Coach Employee Application.
- Include 2-3 valid references within the Employee Application including their contact information.
- Attach a professional resume.
- Answer all questions completely and accurately within the employment application and submit by the deadline.
