Mentors wanted for applied psychology course at INSPYRE lab

The INSPYRE research lab (directed by Dr. Samantha Slade) is currently recruiting undergraduate mentors for a three-hour course in the fall 2024 semester. Mentors spend lunch and recess with an elementary school student twice each week. In return, mentors receive three hours of course credit and many great experiences.

Mentors are required to: pass a background check, have reliable transportation to and from the elementary school, lunch availability from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at least twice a week and be available for a training at the beginning of the semester.

The class, PSY 608 – Special Investigations, does not meet regularly like a traditional class. Students will, however, have a course syllabus, class readings and paper assignments. Mentors will receive training at the beginning of the course and a grade at the end based on attendance and completion of assignments. Students from any college or major are encouraged to apply.
