The lead instructor position consists of the opportunity for faculty and staff to instruct a section of 19 first-year and transfer students as they start their Orange experience. FYS 101 is a one-credit academic course that is a graduation requirement for all incoming students. The lead instructor position application is open now on SU Job Opps.
Peer leaders are undergraduate students who facilitate classroom conversations and course activities throughout the semester. This leadership opportunity is a paid position and applications are currently open on Handshake, but will close on Monday, March 20, at 5 p.m. ET.
