Information for Project Managers
Each LINC project has a student Project Manager. You must apply, interview, and be selected for this responsibility. If chosen, you will be assigned a Partner and Project, and you will be registered for ENG 598: Applied Project Management. As a Project Manager, you facilitate the regularly scheduled ENG 315 sessions for a project (see the course schedule for meeting times), evaluate students’ work, serve as the primary liaison with the partner, manage the project, and participate in a weekly session for Project Managers (two section options for ENG 598 are available: Mondays 12:00-1:50 p.m. OR Mondays 4:00-5:50 p.m. There is no salary, and you earn 4 credit hours via ENG 598. In many cases, two students will be assigned to co-manage a project.
Project Managers have the opportunity (and are expected to) participate in specialized pre-semester training for the LINC program (August 22 and 23, plus a 90-minute microteaching session on August 24).
ENG 598 counts as a pre-approved elective course for the Leadership Studies Minor.
Participating as a Project Manager in LINC enables you to complete most of the requirements for the Citizen Scholar Certificate.
Applicants must be graduate students, advanced undergraduates, or students with significant project management experience.
Apply here for Fall 2013. Please apply online. Applications and Interviews are rolling and will continue until positions are filled. Apply ASAP for equal consideration.
Note to Applicants: Being a LINC Project Manager is a challenging and rewarding experience, and you are sure to learn a lot! However, please consider seriously whether you are truly able and willing to commit to the LINC program if an offer is extended to you after the interview. We invest a significant amount of time to the project manager interview process each semester, and we have many responsibilities to our LINC community partners, students, and the campus. If you accept a position, we’re really counting on you to follow through. Dropping out of ENG 598 once you make a commitment is not like changing your mind about a typical course. It does have a detrimental effect on a lot of other people and is damaging to the LINC program. Please help us out by being mindful of the big picture when applying for and accepting a project manager position.
