Engineering Peer Leaders
Engineering undergraduates, thank you for demonstrating interest in working in a leadership role within the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering!
Should you be selected as a candidate, your main priority is academic performance. It is our goal that you manage your time effectively between school and work so that you succeed in your major. Thus, all undergraduate student employees must maintain a SJSU cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and remain in good standing in your major. Should you not maintain these standards, your assignment may be subject to termination so that you may focus on academics.
Eligibility for Engineering Peer Leader positions requires you to have completed at least one semester in the College of Engineering and be proficient in Microsoft word, excel and PowerPoint applications.
We look forward to reviewing your application and to discussing your interests in serving as a peer leader in the College of Engineering.
Dr. Emily Allen, Associate Dean
