The U-Turn Committee is looking volunteers to serve as Navigators at the upcoming U-Turn event, to be held on Oct. 9, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. in the LSC Grand Ballroom A & B.
What is U-Turn?
U-Turn supports students in reaching their academic goals and identifying strategies to thrive. This campus-wide collaborative event is held each semester in conjunction with the Early Performance Feedback initiative.
U-Turn will once again be offering:
- 30-minute scheduled and walk-in appointments
- Resource booths for immediate assistance from offices such as CSU Health Network, campus-wide tutoring services, and Office of Financial Aid
- A variety of academic success workshops
We consistently hear from students that one-on-one time spent with a Navigator is the most meaningful part of their U-Turn experience.
What does a Navigator do?
As a U-Turn Navigator, you will conduct a brief one-on-one academic coaching meeting with students. Students attend this event to seek guidance and support for challenges they are experiencing that is negatively affecting their academic performance. You will use information the student provides through a self-assessment to brainstorm resources to improve academic performance. Navigators also assist the student in creating an Action Plan for success.
How to Volunteer
Each volunteer shift is 30 minutes long, but we ask that you volunteer for at least one hour (preferably two hours).
Please note that all new Navigators will be required to attend a Navigator training session; returning Navigators are encouraged to attend as well. Training topics include logistics of the day, technology updates, academic coaching strategies, and practical case-studies.
Tuesday, Oct. 2, 3- 4 p.m. OR Friday, Oct. 5, 11 a.m-noon
Sign Up Now
