Each year, the Searle Center works with a handful of Undergraduate Student Associates, who play an integral role in the Center's broad work with not just undergraduates, but also faculty and graduate students.
Undergraduate Student Associates do the following:
- Help develop and lead discussions on learning and teaching for faculty and students
- Run undergraduate focus groups to help the Searle Center understand the student perspective
- Contribute to marketing efforts for Searle Center undergraduate programs
- Write for the Undergraduate Voices web column and the Searle Center blog
- Serve on the Searle Center Advisory Board
- Engage in other projects, based on their interests
Student Associates can expect to spend about 30 hours over the academic year engaged in Searle Center projects.
Benefits of being a Student Associate include
- Developing the critical professional skills highly valued by employers and graduate programs
- Making an impact on teaching and learning at Northwestern
- Interacting with Searle Center staff, Northwestern faculty, and University administrators
