Become a FIG Leader!
To download an application and for more information refer to our website:
The Freshman Interest Group (FIG) program is looking for outstanding UW
undergraduates to serve as FIG Leaders for autumn 2007.
The program is looking for students from all departments who are UW-Seattle
undergraduates with strong organizational skills (i.e., not over-committed),
and a genuine interest in working with freshmen as they face the challenges and
opportunities presented to them as new students. Having been in a FIG as a
freshman is not required.
As a FIG Leader, students will develop a deeper connection to the University
while developing transferable skills in public speaking, discussion
facilitation, lesson plan development, and principles of instructional
leadership. All of these skills will be utilized while instructing a class of
15-25 freshmen enrolled in General Studies 199.
Training will take place during spring quarter 2007. Special arrangements for
summer training can be made for students studying abroad during spring quarter.
FIG Leaders are eligible to receive up to 6 credits for their commitments to
the program, which includes both training for and teaching the General Studies
199 course in autumn quarter.
Applications are available at the Undergraduate Gateway Center (171 Mary Gates
Hall), the Office of Minority Affairs (373 Schmitz Hall), the Instructional
Center (1307 NE 40th) and the Ethnic Cultural Center (ECC) (3931 Brooklyn Ave
