Paid Opportunity for Students: How Huskies Heal Interview Team

Build Community Through Discussions on Healing: Apply to the How Huskies Heal Interview Team!

Each member of our UW community has diverse views based on different life experiences, value systems, and notions of health. Winner of the 2020-2021 Husky Seed Fund AwardHow Huskies Heal will be a published anthology of interviews with members of the UW community that discuss the subjectivity of healing. We hope How Huskies Heal will illustrate there is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing, and function as a novel resource for current and future professionals in providing collaborative care.

By interviewing Husky students, faculty, and staff, Interview Team members will explore and engage with diverse views on healing. This is a  paid opportunity and interview content will be published in the final How Huskies Heal publication in Spring 2021. Ideal candidates are Health Sciences students interested in cultivating therapeutic communication skills and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applicants must complete the Catalyst Survey application by August 5th, 2020, be a current UW student (Health Sciences students preferred) and not a current or recent employee of the UW, possess strong communication skills, and have interest in cultivating therapeutic communication skills and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Please refer to the attached flyer for information on Interview Team member duties, application requirements, and payment for services.

Message from a current SLP at the Kansas School for the Deaf:

We are currently looking for an SLP to join our team for the 2020-2021 school year. Finding SLPs who are skilled to work within our unique setting can be quite difficult. Although, we have found that once we gain an SLP here, they often stay until retirement. I have been a part of this rich, Kansas, Deaf community for 17 years and am thankful to have specialized with this population. We are a bilingual, preschool through high school setting and our 6 current SLPs utilize both ASL and English when working with our students. Our SLPs also hold their CCCs and would be able to supervise a new graduate through their CFY year.  While American Sign Language fluency is not a mandatory requirement upon interviewing for the position, the desire to learn the language is!  Almost all of us have learned this language on the job and on-site classes are provided for free to our new employees.
