Volunteers Needed for Student Emergency Fund Review Team
by UAA Dean of Students Office |
The Dean of Students Office administers the UAA Student Emergency Fund that provides financial assistance to University of Alaska Anchorage students who have experienced unanticipated, temporary financial hardships resulting from emergency or crisis situations or unplanned major life events like disruptions caused by COVID-19.
The Dean of Students Office is looking for UAA faculty or staff members interested in volunteering to be part of the Review Team. The Review Team meets daily on Tuesdays through Fridays from 4-5 p.m. to discuss applications and make awards. Each member of the Review Team is assigned 1-2 applications a day, contacts students, collects documentation, and updates the record-keeping system. The Dean of Students Office needs 2-3 more individuals to be part of the team to manage the current caseload. Interested individuals should be detail-oriented, have good oral communication and decision-making skills, be prompt, reliable, hard-working, and compassionate. The Review Team will meet throughout the summer 2020 and fall 2020 semesters.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Assistant Dean of Students Michael Votava at email@example.com by close of business on Monday, June 29.
