Interested in Facilitating a GIA Class?

 

We are currently looking for campus community partners interested in facilitating classes for the Goals in Action (GIA) program. Here’s some information on GIA:

The GIA program was established as way to support our undergraduate students from a strength-based perspective as they develop and reach their academic goals. GIA is grounded in psychological science (e.g., hope theory, Bandura’s social cognitive theory, Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model, etc.) and helps students develop and achieve strength- and value-based goals. Additionally, it emphasizes the importance of students developing and accessing social support throughout their academic journey, both formal (e.g., institutional resources like the LARC, professors, TAs, academic advisors, DSC, Counseling Center, etc.) and informal support systems (e.g., friends, family, classmates, teammates through the GIA program, etc.). In short, the GIA program aims to be comprehensive by focusing on students’ academic, as well as emotional, social, and psychological wellbeing. The GIA program typically runs for 5 weeks, starting in week 3 of the quarter, and each class is 90 minutes.

Who can facilitate GIA?

Any UCI campus community staff can facilitate a GIA class! We typically pair a Counseling Center staff with our campus partners to co-facilitate a GIA class. We highly encourage campus partners to facilitate GIA, as our undergraduate students benefit from having instructors with diverse perspectives, academic journeys, and roles at UCI. 

What about training?

We train our facilitators typically in November/December of Fall quarter so that we have facilitators ready to teach a GIA class during the Winter and Spring quarters. We typically hold GIA facilitator trainings in a hybrid format (in person and virtual) and provide a recording our training if you are unable to attend on that day.

Interested in Facilitating a GIA Section?

Please contact GIA Program Coordinator, Dr. Anushree Belur, at abelur@uci.edu to learn more.
