FIG Leader Information Sessions and Application

Future FIG Leaders,

Apply to become a FIG Leader! The First-year Interest Groups Program is looking for outstanding students like you to be FIG Leaders for Autumn 2014!

The program is looking for students from all departments who are UW-Seattle undergraduates with strong organizational skills (i.e., not over-committed), and a genuine interest in working with freshmen as they face the challenges and opportunities presented to them as new students.

**Having been in a FIG is not required.

As a FIG Leader, students will develop a deeper connection to the University while developing transferable skills in public speaking, discussion facilitation, lesson plan development, and principles of instructional leadership.  All of these skills will be utilized while instructing a class of 15-25 freshmen enrolled in General Studies 199.

Training will take place during Spring quarter 2014. FIG Leaders are eligible to receive up to 6 credits (3 in spring and 3 in autumn) for their commitments to the program, which includes both training for and teaching the General Studies 199 course in autumn quarter.
