A presentation on the Posse Foundation program at CWRU and two open faculty mentor positions will be held Wednesday, Oct. 6, from 5 to 6 p.m. in Wolstein Hall. A panel that includes four Posse Foundation faculty mentors will be available to share their experiences.
Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by the traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships.
There are two openings for a faculty mentor for Posse 2022. Those interested in the position should attend the presentation on Oct. 6 to learn more about the program and how they can make a difference in the lives of this select group of students.
The Posse faculty mentor is responsible for helping the Posse cohort have a successful transition to campus and their college careers. The mentor does this by meeting with the Posse members individually and as a group during the first two years on campus. It is a two-year position with three mandatory training seminars prior to the Scholars’ first semester of their first year. The position requires approximately 15 hours per week. This is a paid position.
