University is hiring graduate students as academic mentors

Rick Muthiah, director of Learning Support Services, is recruiting three or four graduate students to work as academic mentors for high-risk students on the Newberg campus during the fall 2022 semester.

Academic mentors will work seven to 10 hours per week, and will be paid $14.75 per hour. Students can find more details and application information on theĀ HandShake position posting. The position is open to any George Fox graduate student, including incoming students.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Academic mentors will have the opportunity to continue in the spring semester based on their availability and ongoing need for the program.

Past success coaches have commented on how much they grew through the experience, especially through their one-on-one sessions with high-risk students. The role is not a formal counseling role, but has similarities that can be especially helpful for graduate students who will be entering helping professions.

Please contact Rick Muthiah ( if you have questions.
