Department: Student Affairs
Reports to: Dean of Students
Classification: Full-time, Exempt (salaried)
Date Prepared: February 24, 2017
Position Description and Responsibilities:
The Office of Residence Life currently provides housing for approximately 106 residents and serves as a LivingLearning community. Living- Learning Communities involve the residential environment and integrate academic work with outside the classroom experiences. Both student and professional staff are committed to providing programs that support and create strong residential communities. The staff provides programs to meet the social needs of students as well as the educational needs through diversity initiatives, spiritual activities and community service. All of these activities provide opportunities for students to learn about themselves, build relationships with their peers, and develop into engaged, competent, compassionate, and committed citizens.
Living in a residential community can be a difficult transition for some students, therefore we encourage respect for each other and the entire residential community. Further, the office has a commitment and personal responsibility to make sure students are educated about community standards and expectations upon move-in and are held responsible when those standards are violated and inappropriate behavior is exhibited. Through the judicial process, we empower students to understand how their conduct and decisions impact the community which they live. We understand the major role that residential living can play in a student’s overall experience and the team is committed to making a positive impact in that experience.
Masters degree in Student Affairs Administration, Higher Education, or other related field. Strong interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills, demonstrated leadership and supervisory abilities required. This is a Live-In position and the person must be willing to reside in the residence hall. Must have at least one (1) year of residence hall experience at the graduate level at a college or university. Preference for those who have three (3) years experience in residential living at a college or university.
Technology Skills Required:
Must have strong computer skills including experience with database management (including Datatel), project management programs like Microsoft Project; in-depth experience with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel and ability to learn additional software programs as needed.
Marygrove College is committed to achieving a faculty and staff that is reflective of its diverse student body, and welcomes and encourages applications from members of communities historically underrepresented in higher education. EOE
The REBUILD Detroit Program, a consortium of Marygrove College, University of Detroit Mercy, and Wayne State University, seeks three postdoctoral training fellows (PTFs). The $21.2 M five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funding to support three postdocs for training in teaching and research. The goal of the REBUILD Detroit Program is to transform undergraduate education at the three member institutions establishing Detroit as a center for biomedical research training for underrepresented undergraduate students.
The PTFs will collaborate with consortium faculty, staff, and undergraduate students to teach curriculum emphasizing mentored research among Detroit’s diverse student populations leading to accelerated pipelines into master’s and doctoral degrees to ensure students succeed in biomedical research careers. This common curriculum will include courses containing authentic research experiences based on the Research Coordination Network (RCN) model in the areas of biology, chemistry, and social/health sciences. For more information, see www.rebuildetroit.org.
We seek postdoctoral candidates with a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and research. PTFs will work closely with faculty mentors across the three institutions on: implementing innovative pedagogical strategies in courses based on the RCN model, facilitating a RCN learning community with graduate teaching fellows at each institution, engaging with undergraduate BUILD Scholars on joint research experiences, participating in various capacities in summer enrichment programs, as well as conduct discipline-specific research with a postdoctoral research mentor.
Program Objectives: It is expected that this role in the REBUILD Detroit Program will provide opportunities to:
It is also expected that the PTF will actively seek a full-time faculty position in year two.
The REBUILDETROIT Program Postdoctoral training fellowships are open to postdoctoral scientists with an interest in undergraduate STEM education. Eligibility is not restricted to scientists in biomedical programs, but they should have previous research experience with the disciplinary content associated with one of the RCN models:
Applicants should have a commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching as well as an active research agenda related to one of the RCN disciplines.
To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must be: 1) U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States at the time of application; 2) received a doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent) in a STEM discipline (including social and behavioral sciences) no earlier than 2011 and before September 2017.
This is a 2-year fellowship funded by a NIH grant.
Complete applications must include the following items.
Due Dates & Notification:
Application due date is April 15, 2017
Applicants will be notified by May 15, 2017. Fellowships will commence July 1, 2017.
The ReBUILDetroit Program, a consortium of Marygrove College, University of Detroit Mercy, and Wayne State University, seeks graduate students with a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and research. The Graduate Learning Community Advisors (GLCAs) will work closely with faculty preceptors at one of the ReBUILDetroit campuses to design, implement and deliver a common curriculum in introductory courses containing authentic research experiences based on the Research Coordination Network (RCN) model. For more information, see rebuildetroit.org.
The position will be a commitment of approximately 20 hours of orientation in December 2016, and 8-10 hours per week from January through May, 2017. GLCAs will receive a stipend in the amount of $2500.
The structure of the experience will include:
The ReBUILDetroit Program GLCA positions are open to graduate students with an interest in undergraduate STEM education. Eligibility is not restricted to students in biomedical programs, but they should have knowledge/experience in the disciplinary content associated with one of the RCN models:

Bringing (Genomics) Research into the Undergraduate Curriculum
Date: Thursday, November 3, 2016 Time: 1 pm to 2 pm
Location: Wayne State University (4th Floor Shapero Hall)
Description: Science students learn best when we can engage them in doing science. To reach all of our students, this means incorporating research into our regular, academic year curriculum, designing projects that work well for a group. The challenges and rewards will be discussed in general, drawing on the NAS Convocation Report, and in specific, using the Genomics Education Partnership as an example.
