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:

  • Preparation for careers or graduate/professional school
  • Communication skills – Working with faculty/staff in a paraprofessional role
  • Translating academic concepts into practical solutions
  • Providing service to the university
  • Earning a meaningful letter of recommendation
  • Gaining marketable professional skills

Note: Please review the guidelines and instructions thoroughly before completing the StAP Supervisor Proposal form. Thank you!
