Please note: Resident Assistants (RAs) and Inclusive Community Assistants (ICAs) tend to have great difficulty holding two positions, one in University Housing and the other in SLiCE, due to conflicting departmental trainings and requirements and major scheduling conflicts throughout the year. Also, if hired by SLiCE you cannot also be a Ram Welcome Leader, as fall training significantly conflicts with Ram Welcome scheduling. 

Also, SLiCE cannot hire students studying abroad in their first year of employment with our office. If wanting to study abroad in subsequent years of working in SLiCE, that is fine! This has to do with how much time we invest in training new hires and relying on them to cover our current staffing availability. 

The external application deadline is Sunday, February 18 by midnight for our "2023 - 2024 SLiCE Student Staff Application."
