The Final Cram: An Experimental Study Space

Have a bit more studying to do, or a paper to finish? Join us at WesWell on 5/16 from 2-4pm for a curated study space experience.

We’ll break the time up using the Pomodoro method (25 mins of working, 5 min break) and do restorative activities together for the breaks. We’ll have snacks and drinks, and you can even get a sticker as a little reward when you finish a task. Need to be talked up? Motivational speeches will be available on demand to keep you going. Let WesWell support your final efforts this semester — come to 287 High from 2-4pm and get it done 👏

Wesleyan Student Ombuds

** This is a paid student job open to all students regardless of work study eligibility **

Student Ombuds Position Description  The Wesleyan Student Ombuds Program (link) was informed and inspired by student voices and began in Fall 2021. Student Ombuds are available to talk with students about their concerns related to experiences in the classroom, with their athletic team, or within other parts of their academic and campus life at Wesleyan. Each Ombud serves as a neutral and confidential* peer resource focused on empowering students to successfully navigate the institution and advocate for themselves in moments of conflict, particularly when there are power dynamic considerations. Although separate from the University’s Ombudsperson (link) for staff and faculty, these Student Ombuds are trained to use similar conflict resolution and restorative justice practices. Student Ombuds will provide information about resources, offer perspective, and advise students as they explore and navigate their options for resolving concerns. Student Ombuds will be selected to represent various academic areas of the institution (i.e., each academic division and Athletics) and will be compensated $16/hour for their work, with between 3 and 6 hours of work each week. As 2023-2024 will be the third year of this program, the next cohort of Student Ombuds will play a role in continuing to shape the program and its future. 

TO APPLY: Submit the basic application in Handshake (Job # 6240334) by Sunday, April 16th at 11:59pm (link). The 2022-2023 Student Ombuds are listed here:
