BECOME AN ACADEMIC INTEGRITY PEER EDUCATOR! The Academic Integrity Office is searching for additional students to join our team as Academic Integrity Peer Educators for the 2011-2012 academic year (with anticipation that Peers will continue with the program until they graduate). We are particularly looking for applications from first and second year students! The AI Peer is a volunteer position for 5 hours per week. AI Peers participate in the delivery of the Academic Integrity Seminar, create and give academic integrity presentations, consult with students about academic integrity, advise students who have been alleged with academic integrity violations, and work with university community members to enhance the academic integrity culture at UCSD. To be an AI Peer, students should have: • the ability to work both independently and within dyads and teams; • basic oral presentation and communication skills and an interest in developing these skills further; • desire to exercise leadership and create organizational change around the issue of academic integrity; • professional demeanor and ability to interact with diverse groups at all levels of the university; and, • the commitment and dedication to meet the AI Peer’s responsibilities. • the availability to attend the AI Seminar (usually Wednesday evening or Thursday afternoon) As a result of being an AI Peer, students will develop: • their capacity for leadership by stimulating integrity dialogues and challenging students on their academic conduct; • communication skills by presenting to small and large groups of diverse audiences; • ethical decision-making strategies, and gain a sense of personal, professional and institutional ethics and their complicated intersection; and, • program development skills by working with a team to develop the peer educator program and academic integrity presentations.
If you are interested in becoming an Academic Integrity Peer Educator, please submit an application by April 29th, 2011 to: Dr. Tricia Bertram Gallant Academic Integrity Office 508A Student Services Center 9500 Gilman Drive, Dept 0069 La Jolla, CA, 92093-0069 email@example.com NOTE: Those accepted into the AI Peer Educator program must commit to at least 5 hours/week in each of the fall, winter and spring quarters. Those who are unable to commit to these hours might want to instead consider joining the AIM! Student Organization. See http://aimucsd.wordpress.com/join-a-i-m/ for more information.
