Occidental College is a private four-year liberal arts institution that is consistently ranked among the top liberal arts colleges in the nation. Student enrollment is approximately 2,200 undergraduates. The campus is located in Eagle Rock, a suburb of Los Angeles that is 10 minutes north of downtown and 5 minutes west of Pasadena.
The Graduate Assistant (GA) is integral to the division’s effort to provide a purposefully engaging out-of-class experience for students. We seek a graduate assistant who is capable of linking student development theory to practice. The GA-ship is a professional, entry-level preparatory experience that is directly supervised by the Assistant Dean for Community Engagement.
The goal of the OCE is to support Occidental students, faculty and staff in engaging with the Los Angeles community and beyond as well as to help create links with community partners who would like to be engaged with the campus. Through our various programs and collaborations, we help enact the college's mission of community and service. It is the aim of the Office of Community Engagement to offer programs that are rooted in social justice. We look to foster a purposeful, open, just, caring, and celebrative community.
The GA is an essential member of the Student Affairs team. General duties include maintaining the Office of Community Engagement, planning and implementing campus-wide programs, and coordinating leadership development and social justice training for students. The GA will also assist the Assistant Dean with special projects.
