Huskie Service Scholars Site Supervisor Application Deadline
NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning (OSEEL) is currently accepting campus site supervisor applications for the Huskie Service Scholars (HSS) program for the 2018-2019 academic year!
HSS program was designed to develop a critical peer network and to provide necessary support for NIU freshmen and first-year transfer students while they engage in service-learning work on campus and in the community. The program is specifically geared towards first-generation or Pell grant eligible undergraduate students.
Students receive a $1,200 tuition waiver through NIU’s Scholarship Office after successful completion of the program. Service to the campus partner is a regular commitment that students make each week. Hours in office is dependent upon the office’s needs and the student’s availability.
The service projects that students engage in should help students to understand and contribute to the mission of their site, allow the student to interact with faculty, staff and students across campus, and challenge students to use critical thinking skills. In return, campus partners provide students with projects and tasks that are within their interest range, and help them to practice and develop the skills they need within their major. In the past, the scholars in the program have assisted offices in a variety of ways, including programming prep work, data collection, tabling events, and volunteer projects put on by the respective campus partners. In addition, students propose a yearlong service-learning project related to their campus site that they present at the Community Engagement Showcase at the end of the program.
Participation in HSS helps students to grow and expand their knowledge on how they can serve their community and enhance their education through real-world experiences.
