Help Make the IMA More Inclusive – UW Recreation Job Opportunity

UW Recreation is looking for a student employee to work on a renovation project to make the IMA more inclusive and welcoming to campus community members, regardless of gender. Below are the details of the position, which would start as soon as possible.

Inclusive Locker Room & Pool Renovation Project Student Employee

The project: Inclusive Locker Room & Pool Renovation Project – Research, create, and present a proposal to renovate existing locker rooms and pool at the IMA to be more inclusive.

    • Participation in recreation activities has a positive impact on students’ experience in college – building community, reducing stress, and increasing self-confidence. However, barriers exist for many students to experience these benefits. UW Recreation hopes to take a crucial and tangible step in reducing barriers to wellness for often marginalized student and campus community members by renovating existing binary locker rooms (female and male labels) and pool at the IMA. This project would affirm UW Recreation and our campus’ value of inclusion.

 

The work: Position to start immediately and continue through Autumn 2017 quarter, with potential for additional quarters. 5-10 hours a week. $15 an hour.

    • This position will work with UW Recreation and campus partners to ensure that students have a voice in the research, proposal, and decision-making for the potential Inclusive Locker Room & Pool Renovation Project. Examples of duties include: researching best practices on how to reduce barriers to wellness for often marginalized campus communities including all sexual and gender orientation, identities, and expressions, students with disabilities, or anyone seeking additional privacy; meeting with key campus stakeholders including RSOs; and working with supervisor to prepare and present materials to SAF, ASUW, RSOs, and the campus community.

To express interest in the position, please contact Alison Greenwood, Special Projects Manager for UW Recreation, at agreen2@uw.edu.
