EIU Civic Engagement and Volunteerism

Graduate Assistantship Information


The Civic Engagement and Volunteerism Office has two graduate assistantship positions. These positions normally run year round from June 1-May 31 and are offered as a two year assistantship. Due to this, we generally only have one open position every spring for the following year. 

General Hiring timeline
Our priority is to support the College Student Affairs graduate program. While we will accept all applications regardless of graduate program, we will interview CSA candidates first. This takes place in mid-February. If we still have an opening after this process is completed in early to mid-March, we will begin interviewing other candidates. Our goal is to have this position selected by early April each year.

All positions are filled for the 2022-2023 school year. We will begin reviewing applications for the 2023-2024 school year in February. 

Preferred qualifications for assistantship:

  • Undergraduate involvement in community service, programming board, other student organizations
  • Customer service and program planning experience
  • Ability to deal with stress associated with a fast-paced work environment and multiple priorities/tasks
  • Experienced problem solver who is comfortable being a leader
