Job Opportunity

Security Monitor Program

Pay: $11.00 progressing to $12.00 after 260 hours

Security Monitors are a visible security presence on the University of Minnesota campus. They work with police officers to ensure a safe environment for all U of MN students, staff, faculty, and visitors. Security Monitors communicate with U of MN community members in order to increase safety on campus and to request that community members comply with applicable rules, regulations, and laws. Security Monitors are a visible deterrent and should never physically intervene in an incident. Security Monitors will request assistance from the U of MN Police when necessary.

This is a great opportunity for any Sociology students who wish to go into law enforcement.

The United Nations Summer Study (UNSS) program, offered by The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs, puts graduate and undergraduate students on the ground in the United Nations and in New York City. Unlike other UN study programs, UNSS takes you beyond a narrow focus on security and diplomacy to investigate development, human rights, humanitarian action, peacekeeping and peacebuilding, environmental, and reform issues. UNSS course work prepares you to understand and engage with contemporary issues, policies, and debates in international affairs. UNSS practicums, not found in any other UN summer program, enable you to gain hands-on experience in the UN system.

Visit the UNSS website to learn more about our three different program options as well as the structure of the class, colloquia, and site visits in New York City.
