The Student Assistantship Program (StAP) provides hands-on experiences in a professional setting for Ohio Wesleyan University students who desire to complement their liberal arts education with practical experiences. The StAP program enables students to translate what they have learned in the classroom into practical solutions in a real-world work environment here on campus. It is the intention of the StAP program to place students in positions that assist them with:
All Student Assistantship positions and employers are on-campus and enrolled students are compensated through monthly student-payroll disbursements. Student Assistantship positions do not overlap, duplicate, or replace work-study jobs or academic internships; instead, they supplement these existing opportunities. The goal of the program is to create new employment opportunities on campus for students wishing to gain hands-on experience in areas of potential future professional employment.

CREATING A STAP POSITION
When designing your proposal, please keep in mind the spirit of the program. Ideal positions should provide major responsibilities, develop workplace skills, and be centered on a major project. Positions should require a greater level of responsibility and commitment than is typically required in work-study positions, and should not be ones in which the student is simply a general-purpose assistant. Please follow the format shown in this example.
In drafting your position description, please pay particular attention to the following items:
Position descriptions will be made available on the website for interested students shortly after their approval. Although the availability of the position descriptions will be announced, the supervisor frequently knows the qualified students for a given position. Please advertise your position directly to qualified students and encourage them to apply. Because of the very strict timeline, proposals absolutely cannot be accepted after the deadline.
