FIG Leader

As a FIG leader, you’ll gain valuable experience for the future while helping students succeed in transitioning to college.

FIG Leaders work with the Office of First Year Programs staff to develop curriculum and activities for General Studies 199: The University Community (GEN ST 199), a class included in every FIG cluster class and stand-alone class. The GEN ST 199 course is facilitated entirely by you, our peer instructors. As a FIG leader you’ll teach a section of GEN ST 199 for a first-year student or transfer student.

This experience gives you the chance to earn course credit while enhancing leadership skills that will assist you in future professional endeavors. In addition, you will take part in a program that has become a significant part of the UW student experience! 

Applications are now closed. We will reopen applications for next year in December 2017.
