The Office of Off-Campus Student Life is excited to share a new paid employment opportunity for currently enrolled Carolina students in Spring '21. If you are interested in learning more, please read below. 

The Off-Campus Student Outreach Coordinator (SOC) Program is a team of student staff who work with off-campus students living in near-campus/downtown neighborhoods and apartment communities. The SOC assist with executing the mission of the Office of Off-Campus Student Life and promoting the expectations of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In their role, the SOC target communications to off-campus students through a variety of student-centered peer-to-peer platforms and channels, serve as a resource to off-campus students, and work to build community and goodwill among off-campus students, non-student neighbors, and the broader Chapel Hill-Carrboro community. 

We understand that students are growing and learning necessary skills for life after Carolina, including how to be good neighbors and participate in safe activities. Our ability to increase the quality and frequency of outreach to off-campus students as it pertains to health, safety and quality of life issues in the community, is critical. By reducing incidents of social gatherings and parties that are non-compliant with Carolina's COVID19 Community Standards and local, state, and federal guidelines as it pertains to COVID19, as well as other issues of wellbeing including misuse of alcohol and other drugs, we can help students fully participate in the local community and build a stronger Chapel Hill. 

The SOC position is anticipated to require ~10 hrs/week and pay $10.30/hr. The anticipated start date is January 19 and the position(s) will run through the Spring '21 semester.

  • A high level of maturity exhibited in sound judgment, flexibility, and willingness to accept responsibility;
  • An ability to communicate clearly and effectively;
  • Experience working autonomously, one-on-one and as a member of a team;
  • An understanding of the needs of and an interest in working with college students who live off-campus;
  • An understanding of, sensitivity to, and willingness to work with a diverse student and community population;
  • A desire to serve as a resource to and provide assistance to students;
  • Leadership potential as evidenced by previous leadership experiences and recommendations.

Although not a requirement, a desired qualification for this position is currently living off-campus in the greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro community.
