The University of Idaho is seeking qualified candidates to fill a Graduate Assistantship position in the Student-Athlete Support Services unit. Reporting to the Director of SASS the graduate assistant will work in all facets of the program.
Academic graduate assistant responsibilities will include being a vital part of the guided study program with student-athletes, monitoring student-athlete academic progress, assisting with coordinating/supervising study halls, assisting with on-campus recruiting, assisting in hiring and scheduling tutors, preparing academic reports and assessments, and other duties as assigned by the student-athlete support services staff.
Qualifications for positions include: Bachelor’s degree required in an appropriate discipline, a background in athletics, intent to work in the field of student athletic support services, excellent written and oral communication skills, excellent organizational skills, and great attention to detail.
