“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed." - Napoleon Hill

Information Assistants are the first point of contact for any student entering the ULC seeking assistance. IAs manage the flow of traffic at our two locations, matching students with an appropriate Learning Assistant and keeping track of learning sessions. They also provide students with information about other relevant workshops and programs provided by the ULC, and lead our Marketing and Social Media Team. Daily tasks include greeting students, data entry, answering phones, and general administrative duties.

NOTE ABOUT APPLICATION: While you are able to go back and edit your responses (keep a copy of our confirmation email after you submit), applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and we will not see edits on an application after it has already been reviewed. We therefore recommend that you complete the application in a single sitting.

Please do not submit more than one application per semester.
