  • Prepares students applying for the position with expectations, required skills and screening steps (including costs), transportation realities, etc.
  • Supports a climate¬†of inclusivity, diversity and equity.
  • Aids with evaluation efforts to improve both services and future iterations of the position and description.
  • Provides a reflection tool for students learning and agency/program evolution purposes.
