Graduate Assistant The Native Student Program

Syracuse University

Posted 4 days ago

VIEW JOBS 12/11/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-03-11T00:00 The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is to support and promote the academic achievement, multicultural competence, social development, civic engagement, and retention of students from historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups at Syracuse University. Although OMA will support all students regardless of race or ethnicity, the four following groups have been denoted as the historically underrepresented groups most frequently served by OMA; Asian and Pacific Islander American students, Indigenous/Native American students, Hispanic/Latinx students, and Black/African American students. Graduate Assistants are an integral part of the OMA team and are expected to work 20 hours per week. The Native Student Program was created as a resource for Native students to support their transition into college. Students gather weekly to attend workshops and gain strategic information that promotes academic success, including academic counseling. Since heritage is very important, the program provides opportunities for students to attend conferences and to remain connected to their people and their history, including a trip to culminate the Native Idenitity Series. Past trips have included visits to the Ganondagan State Historical Site in Victor, New York, Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community in Fonda, New York, and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. With the direct connection to the Onondaga Nation provided by the Assistant Director and the Native Student Program Graduate Assistant, students will also have access to and a genuine connection with local Indigenous people and events. The Native Student Program also provides students the necessary engagement for growth and success beyond the walls of college through faculty, staff, and peer interaction. The physical space committed to the Native Student Program at 113 Euclid Avenue serves as an extension to the home-away-from-home theme that is central to the Office of Multicultural Affairs for its students.
