The primary duty of the Student Life Advisor (SLA) is to create and maintain a positive living/learning environment for the students in their care. Each SLA works independently with his/her group of students (approximately 30-40 students) and collectively with the other staff to ensure that student care, development, and safety needs are met.
In addition to programming responsibilities, SLAs who enjoy being involved in many aspects of campus life can elect to sponsor clubs and student organizations or to serve on various campus networks. SLAs can also plan or chaperone social or educational off-campus trips.
Specific responsibilities include supervising the student sign-out process, conducting nightly room checks to assure that all students are accounted for in the building, conducting weekly room-inspection, transporting students as needed (in school vehicles), enforcing policies, and planning and implementing social and educational programming. At times SLAs may need to dispense over-the-counter or prescription medication or provide other medical care, for which training is provided.
Additional on-the-job training, including CPR/AED and first aid training, will be provided. SLAs interested in additional professional development opportunities can apply for funding to attend conferences and workshops in line with their work and career goals.
This is a full-time, live-in position and includes free room, meal plan, and all benefits afforded to Louisiana State employees including, participation in the Louisiana State Teachers' Retirement plan. The contract for this position will run from date of hire through May 27, 2018, with the possibility of contract renewal for the following school year.
