Due to the effect of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) unfortunately we have had to suspend recruitment of new Student Staff Leaders for the 2020 spring semester. We sincerely apologise to those who have been waiting patiently for a decision on this matter. This difficult decision was taken with the consideration that most of the ICC’s events this semester have been postponed or canceled and that we cannot introduce new staff in the usual way at this time. We ask for your kind understanding of our decision.
Furthermore, regarding the recruitment of new SSLs for the autumn semester, we have decided to begin the recruitment process earlier that usual in September. We will begin announcing the information from June 15th, interviews will be carried out online. When the full recruitment schedule has been decided you will be able to find it on the ICC home page and we will also put notices on MyWaseda and through our mailing news system. Please check it out when it is released.
ICC Student Staff Leaders (SSL) are a driving force behind the ICC’s events and activities.
By making use of Student Staff Leaders’ own viewpoints, ideas and unique skills, diverse opportunities for cross-cultural exchange that meet the needs of current students can be effectively provided. The ICC strives to assist Student Staff Leaders to develop into leaders capable of functioning in an increasingly global society.
Student Staff Leaders not only actively plan and manage events and recruit event supporters, but also promote the ICC’s activities by conducting presentations for local and international guests of the university, support the everyday operation of the center through office work and responding to inquiries, and other various tasks. In many ways, SSL are an indispensable feature of the ICC.
Becoming a Student Staff Leader is more than just an ordinary part-time job. Similar to an internship, SSL are expected to take part in a wide range of duties and as a result gain valuable skills and experiences that will no doubt be of use in future positions after graduation. Why not take the challenge, and help the ICC to fulfill its mission?
The ICC provides opportunities for cross-cultural exchange between local and international students/faculty, aiming to promote mutual understanding that goes beyond cultural differences. The ICC is currently recruiting new student staff who will be engaged in various activities, from planning and coordination of cross-cultural events and programs to the center’s daily operation including general office work.
