Call for U-Turn Navigators

The Spring 2020 U-Turn event is in need ofvolunteer Navigators! This Spring’s event will be held on Tuesday, March 3, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., in the LSC North Ballroom.

U-Turn is an academic success event that supports students in reaching their goals and identifying strategies to thrive. This campus- wide collaborative event is held each semesterin conjunction with the Early PerformanceFeedback 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 Navigator, you will conduct a briefone-on-one academic coaching meeting with students who attend U-Turn. Students attend this event to seek guidance and support forchallenges they are experiencing that are negatively a ecting their academics. You will use information the student provides through a self-assessment to brainstorm resources the students can utilize to improve their academic performance. Navigators will also assist the student in creating an Action Plan for success.

Each volunteer shift is 30 minutes but we ask volunteers to sign up for at least one hour (preferably two hours).

Please note that all new Navigators will
be required to attend a 90-minute trainingsession. Trainings topics include logistics
