Study Group Leaders - Currently Accepting Applications for Fall 2018!

Study Group leaders take the one-credit, semester-long seminar CAS 312, “Supportive Practices in Peer Education,” and prepare, conduct, and keep records for a weekly Study Group session, typically in collaboration with the course instructor. Supportive Practices in Peer Education is a course to prepare Study Group leaders and Tutors; therefore, all Study Group leaders will have the option to be a CETL Tutor as well.

Study Group leaders earn about $30 per weekly Study Group session. Students who participated regularly in one or more Study Groups in the past and improved their grade in the associated courses as a result are particularly encouraged to apply. There is no strict GPA requirement to apply; however, preference will be given to applicants who performed well in the courses that they propose to lead Study Group in. Applicants must also be available during the Fall 2018 semester either a) from 10:25 to 11:15 AM or b) from 2 to 2:50 PM on Fridays to participate in the CAS 312 seminar.
