Dear Applicant,

The Department of Residence Life is proud to announce its Student Life Paraprofessional Staff Selection process for Spring 2014. While our process is both extensive and comprehensive, our hope is not only to hire staff, but also allow you to grow and learn as an individual. By completing this application, you are showing an interest in becoming more involved in our university community through one of the numerous opportunities offered to our students.

Please read and answer each question carefully on the application confining your answers to the space provided. Please type in your answers, being aware of grammar and spelling. Once you have completed your application, review it for errors. When you are satisfied, print it out and sign it.

Please include a copy of your unofficial transcript along with your application. Unofficial Transcripts can be found on the Student Services page of my.newpaltz.edu.

Reference Forms are ONLY available through Residence Hall Directors, or if you live off-campus, through the Office of Residence Life.

These reference forms are a very important support of your candidacy. Please choose carefully those you ask to complete them. We require that one reference be from a Residence Hall Director. The other two references can be from any combination of faculty, professional staff member and a current/and or past employer. While close friends and relatives may know you well, they do not provide the most objective input on your strengths and weaknesses. Please be sure to sign and check the box under Family Educational Right and Privacy Act. Reference forms must be in your file by 4 p.m. FRIDAY, Feb. 28.

Please return your completed application to the Department of Residence Life located in Capen Hall. Applications are due by 12 p.m. MONDAY, Feb. 24.  

Late applications will NOT be accepted.

If you have any questions concerning the application and/or selection process, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Residence Life staff, or contact us via email at leadershipteam@newpaltz.edu.  We wish you the best throughout the process and thank you for your interest.

Sincerely,

The Leadership Development Team
