This internship is being hosted by Dominica State College (DSC), which is located in Roseau – the capital of Dominica. The College is the country’s only public higher education institution and is responsible for educating and training the majority of citizens seeking access to higher education in Dominica. DSC offers 33 associate degree programs with a focus on technical and vocational education and training, a Bachelor of Science in nursing, and six certificate programs.
The Student Support Officer will play a critical role at Dominica State College’s Student Affairs Department. The intern will be responsible for coordinating activities to ensure that students transition successfully into the tertiary education environment by engaging in programs geared to help students adjust and acclimatize. The intern will also provide support avenues to those students who could feel excluded from traditional campus life and college experiences, including students with disabilities. Most of the Student Support Officer’s work would focus on new, incoming students, to provide them with survival skills for the rest of their DSC journey
