Listing of Potential Assistantships

Academic Advising Office – Retention Specialist

Creating a connection to a college community is a vital component to student retention. Having a graduate assistant in the Academic Advising office would allow more students to benefit from a hands-on onboarding experience. Making this connection to an office/individual early on in a student’s college experience will offer a consistent contact for a student should any problems arise, and allow for the retention specialist to proactively provide resources.

More individual attention could also be paid to a student’s interests allowing for connections to be made to clubs and organizations, creating a tie to the NEC community. Each graduate assistant would be connected with an academic division to liaise and work with specific faculty and specified student cohorts based on program or major of interest.

Assistantships will have overlapping responsibilities with each encompassing a specific area of emphasis to improve retention: data analytics, first-year experience, success coaching, and the utilization of technology. Read the full job description here.
