Jane has demonstrated excellence this year by taking ownership of a major project that was outside her scope of day to day job responsibilities. As a result of her success, new responsibilities were built into her role going forward; specifically relating to this redesigned program that she voluntarily spearheaded.
Jane was responsible for redesigning and expanding the department student mentor program by creating paid mentor positions. This was a big initiative that needed to be approved on multiple levels to make it happen. She first did some research on what other schools were doing through the NACADA Regional Conference last year. Then she wrote a proposal to formalize the program with paid positions. This was approved. Once approved, this meant that she had to hire, train, and manage these student employees, which included new time/payroll management responsibilities. We hired upwards of 15 student mentors to assist with welcoming, presenting, and registering students at orientation and fall welcome.
The formalization of this program helped our advisors to better manage orientation numbers of 60+ students last year. The students were much better trained and were often sought out as presenters for our big Fulton presentation. We will continue with the program for the 2019 orientation season.
