The RCMS Assistant Director/Advisor plans and implements college preparation curriculum, assists students through every part of the college preparation process (i.e. ACT prep., FAFSA, Admissions, Scholarships, Grants and Loans), and plans all summer field trips. Recruitment of new students through on-site presentations and utilizing the network of precollege programs in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota is a primary focus for this position each spring. The Assistant Director also has primary responsibility for the residence hall environment during the six-week summer session, including—in conjunction with the TRIO & Precollege Programs Director–interviewing, hiring, and supervising Resident Assistants (RAs) (including the Head RA).
