CGE: Global Fellow (S99995)

Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities

Global Fellows join the new Center for Global Education (formerly the separate offices of Off-Campus Study and International Student Programs) as key student-focused partners and campus leaders, sharing their experiences with – and enthusiasms for – global education with the Bates community through event programming, communication, and peer-mentorship. While the four positions have different areas of focus, as detailed below, Global Fellows will be expected to support and assist one another on key projects.
1. Global Fellow: Peer Mentor (2 positions)
Peer Mentors will provide resources, information, support, and referrals to one of two primary constituencies: students interested in studying off-campus and international students. Peer mentoring supplements the primary advising and support provided by Global Education staff. Together with the respective Associate Dean, each peer mentor will also organize programming including returning off-campus student debriefings, predeparture conversations for off-campus study, and cultural discussions to help their peers navigate everyday life in the US.
2. Global Fellow: Events Coordinator
The events coordinator will take a lead role in developing and organizing global education opportunities on campus, including speakers, presentations, performances, and conversations to promote global awareness and engagement at Bates.
3. Global Fellow: Media Strategist
Using various forms of communication – including the Center website – the media strategist will create and execute a storytelling strategy highlighting the global engagements of students and faculty. The media strategist will also help publicize programming and events organized by other Global Fellows.
All Global Fellows will be expected to attend a weekly Fellows meeting together with Associate Dean & Center Director, Tina Mangieri and Associate Dean for International Student Programs, James Reese, to brainstorm and discuss ongoing planning, preparation, and related issues.
