Job Summary

ODMA strives to create an inclusive environment that promotes the College’s values, advocates for equity, celebrates diversity, fosters respect, and elevates success and academic excellence. Within ODMA, Multicultural Student Success Coordinators (MSSCs) offer culturally responsive one-on-one and group mentoring, coaching, and connection with student support services and resources. This Intern will report to the MSSC for undocumented students (with or without DACA) and families with mixed immigration statuses at the Dream Center. The SLCC Dream Center works holistically with this population from college access to graduation.

  • Support and mentor students by answering questions about access to higher education as well as various ways of navigating the higher education system. This will require interns to become familiarized and keep themselves continuously informed about the policies and services that benefit undocumented students (with or without DACA) at SLCC, the state of Utah, and the United States.
  • Support the Dream Center coordinator by taking overflow student meetings, questions, emails, and calls.
  • Support the Dream Center coordinator with managing the Bruin Dreams Scholarship Mentorship. This may include keeping track of new and previously awarded recipients, meeting with new recipients regarding expectations, and continuing to follow up with previously awarded recipients. Additionally, duties may include helping with the Undocumented Student Resource Committee regarding the Bruin Dreams Scholarship Mentorship.
  • Perform clerical functions such as data entry, spreadsheets, and other forms of assessment as assigned.
  • Other duties as assigned

f. Learn the requirements of SLCC services, major prerequisites, programs and degree options as well as college resources and current procedures (e.g. application, residency, placement, and orientation) as they relate to undocumented students.
g. Continuously be informed about the changes in immigration policy and legislation that would impact undocumented students (with or without DACA).

Knowledge, Skills & Abilities

  • Ability to communicate effectively with a broad range of diverse people, ability, culture, and ethnic background, to maintain good working relationships across the College.
