Become a FYAC Facilitator
First-Year Aggie Connections (FYAC) facilitators are matched with a group of around 25 first-year students in a “Connection.” All Connections are different—some are associated with for-credit seminars, others are affiliated with on-campus groups and others are based on a common academic or co-curricular interest.
As a facilitator you:
- Oversee Connections made up of around 25 students that share a common interest for one academic quarter
- Communicate FYAC purpose and goals to students
- Serve as an immediate connection with university faculty/staff for students
- Commit to facilitating a minimum of 6 sessions during the quarter with your Connection (unless you are instructing a for-credit seminar requiring more meeting times)
- Have the option of having a peer mentor assigned to your Connection to provide support to students within the Connection, plan activities and determine programming
- UC Davis faculty, staff, or graduate students
- Higher education professionals who are knowledgeable about campus resources and passionate about connecting with student
Why be a facilitator?
- Play a role in first-year student success
- Stay connected to current student needs and campus climate
- Help create a network of mentors on campus for first-year students
- Attend FYAC networking events
- Forge deeper relationships with undergraduate students
