I just started at this position last fall and I kind of sat back to see how things ran my first semester here. There are a lot of changes I have in mind, but 1st things 1st, I am revamping the tutor training to become CRLA certified. Here at SUNY Oswego, we have the follow set-up in regard to professionals versus student staffing:

 

Office of Learning Services - umbrella

  • Director 
    • Teaches tutor training course/semester
    • Manages overall day to day of centers 
  • Secretary - ESSENTIAL to running of the centers
  • Grad Assistant - ESSENTIAL to running of the center/s, but must train new one each year
  • 15 content peer tutors (few grad students, mostly undergraduate)

STEM Center

  • Math Coordinator - manages all tutoring functions/teaches 1 course 
    • Teaches 1 lower level English course/semester
  • Math Placement Coordinator
    • Teaches 1 lower level math course/semester
  • Math Specialist
    • Teaches 1 lower level math course/semester - EOP based
  • 60 math/sci peer tutors (few grad students, mostly undergraduate)

Writing Center

  • Associate Director/Writing
    • Teaches 1 lower level English course/semester
  • Lead Tutor/Grad Student
  • 13 writing peer tutors (few grad students, mostly undergraduate)

Student Academic Support Specialists (SASS)

  • 2 FT - MS/MA professionals 
    • Advise/coach 1st year students primarily
    • Work with AP (academic probation students)
    • Teach minimum of 2 student success courses/quarter each
      • 4 quarter length courses taught per SASS/semester
    • Facilitate academic support workshops throughout the semester
      • total of 3 subjects, 4 workshops each (12 total)

Computer Tech Specialist (CTS)

  • Half time computer tech support.

Any information as to how others run things would be greatly appreciated. At the CRLA conference last fall I learned about "Synergistic Supervision" and am working toward applying those techniques here. 

 

Thanks :-)

Hi all - I am curious about the ratio of professional staff to student staff in your centers. I'd also love to know if you have graduate students or other paraprofessionals who assist with supervision/management. Finally, is your supervision model adequate?

 

Thanks

​ in advance!

Jennifer
