The mission of the Student Advisory Board is to continuously improve The One Project. The Advisory Board is a diverse cross-section of students representing the university's LGBTQA community. Students must have an interest in improving the campus services for LGBTQA students through The One Project. The Advisory Board works to help inform the Co-Coordinators of The One Project on student needs and attitudes so the program can best serve the campus. The Advisory Board will promote The One Project through coordination of programs and community involvement. Positions are held for the duration of the student's enrollment at the university.
-Serve as a liaison between students and the Co-Coordinators of The One Project.

-Promote the general welfare of the LGBTQA community on campus.
-Act as outstanding students in their academics and social lives.
-Offer recommendations for new programs or modifications of existing programs.

The UNIV Teaching Assistant (TA) experience is an opportunity for students to view the classroom from a different perspective. Students are paired with an instructor and placed in either a UNIV100 or UNIV101 section. TAs work with their assigned instructors in creating the class syllabus, activities, and assignments. This is not a traditional TA position - TAs are active participants in all aspects of the course, from leading class discussions to reading journal assignments, from explaining the Honor Code to attending the First Look Fair. TAs are representatives of the Orientation Office and the University of Maryland.
TAs begin their commitment at the end of August with a training and remain in their position through the Fall semester. Given that this is a credit-bearing experience, students must feel secure that they can balance the responsibilities associated with being a TA with the rest of their academic classes. Please see more on the eligibility and application process online. Please note, a one-on-one interview will be held with all applicants.
All Alternative Break Trip processes and applications are run in coordination with Leadership and Community Service Learning (LCSL) Alternative Breaks Program. For more information on The One Project's trip, please visit our Alternative Breaks page.
