ILCC- Prairie State College
The AmeriCorps VISTA will focus on recruitment and retention efforts for the needs of our First Generations students, our First year Experience students, and our Veteran students. As a college, Prairie State College (PSC) has selected our First Year Initiative project as our Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Accreditation Quality Initiative Project and are prepared to support all activities college wide that are associated with this effort toward post-secondary success. We are looking for a college graduate who is a considerate person and wants to work with students to break down the barriers preventing them from college completion. Someone who is flexible and eager to make a difference in our students’ lives. We would appreciate someone who is a self-starter and able to occasionally work on multiple projects simultaneously. We want someone who is a part of a team, and who will be a positive part of thinking about innovative solutions to assist student success.
