We are currently seeking instructors for the following courses:

The program will run from June 22-July 27, 2013. Compensation is approximately $1500-$2000 per course/section taught and is commensurate with teaching experience.
Additionally, we are seeking upper level undergraduates, recent college graduates, and/or graduate students to join our residence staff. As the engines of the Institute, the Residence Counselors & Mentors (RCMs) are responsible for ensuring students' safety and well-being, as well as managing and overseeing the Institute's day-to-day operations. General duties include but are not limited to: attending classes to observe student performance; organizing leadership workshops; tutoring students; accompanying students on field trips; mentoring students; and organizing recreational activities. Room and board are covered by the Institute, as well as a $300 travel stipend for out-of-state staff members. Compensation for this position ranges from $1800-$2000. There is also the possibility to work in a dual capacity as both an instructor and an RCM, in which case compensation can be as much as $3500.
