Student Leader Roles

Teaching Assistant
Your Teaching Assistant is assigned to your Connections & Decisions class and facilitates activities to help you reflect on your experiences. They also share their experiences and help you learn about academic and experiential opportunities at Northeastern.

N.U.in Mentor
N.U.in Mentors serve as a key contact for Explore Program N.U.in students while you are abroad during your first semester.  N.U.in Mentors are responsible for scheduling virtual meetings for one-on-one and group conferences about exploration, academic interests, and spring course registration.

Peer Mentor
Your Peer Mentor is assigned to your Connections & Decisions class and provides you with guidance and encouragement as you explore. Peer Mentors answer your questions, share their own experiences, and encourage you to become your own best self-advocate.

International Student Ambassador (ISA)
The ISA connects with new international Explore Program students via phone, email, social media apps or in-person if possible from May to August to provide peer guidance as you get ready to come to Northeastern in the fall. Our ISAs also began in the Explore Prgram and look forward to supporting you and answering your questions as you prepare to join us in Boston- your new home away from home!

Explore Program student leaders who have shown outstanding initiative and active engagement in the Explore Program are invited to serve as Coordinators. Coordinators help with administrative tasks and oversee planning for the undeclared student group NU Horizons.

Service-Learning Teaching Assistants
S-LTAs work with service-learning sections of Connections & Decisions to coordinate service placements and facilitate reflection activities.

Office Assistant
Students who have federal work-study can apply to work at the front desk in 1 Meserve. Our office assistants check students in for advising appointments, greet and direct students and visitors, and assist with administrative projects related to the Explore Program’s social media and blog.
