The EAGLES Program, housed in Auburn University’s College of Education, is now hiring Level 1 WINGS male resident assistants. Anyone interested in helping support students in gaining independent living skills and promoting inclusion throughout Auburn University’s campus and community life is encouraged to apply.

EAGLES is a comprehensive transition program (CTP) for students with intellectual disabilities. The program provides a post-secondary education opportunity for students with intellectual disabilities to engage in a two- or four-year campus experience to help students achieve their employment and independent living goals upon successful completion of the program.

Level 1 WINGS reside in campus dorms with the EAGLES students. In addition to making a positive impact on the lives of others and the Auburn campus, these peer mentors receive free campus housing, stipends, a meal plan, and–most importantly–lifelong friendships and memories.

The position is open to both graduate students and upper-class male undergrads. The application information is available here, and for more information, contact Jessica Milton at jessicamilton@auburn.edu.
