The Pennsylvania State University is committed to ensuring that diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the success of a world-class research institution. Toward that end, the Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity invites applications for office work-study positions during the summer, fall, and spring of 2019–20. Successful candidates will possess writing, editing, and oral communication skills as well as an interest in learning and developing these skills. The candidates will also be detail-oriented, reliable, efficient, motivated, and resourceful. Successful candidates will work on special projects that will improve their knowledge about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Previous work experience in an office environment and an interest in social science research is a plus. Students are encouraged to include their relevant skills, abilities, and academic experiences on their résumé and cover letter. Common job duties include, but are not limited to: meeting with supervisor(s) and office staff regularly; utilizing Microsoft Office Suite to create, save, download, and share files; communicating with office staff via Penn State email and Microsoft OneNote; general office duties to stocking, printing, and organization; inputting data into spreadsheets and databases; and other duties as assigned. Applicants will work regular hours during the week (open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) and may choose their schedule in consultation with their supervisor(s). Review of applications will begin immediately, and post will remain open until filled.
