Diversity of our staff is important, below are some thing to keep in mind as you are thinking about what students you might encourage to apply:

sophomores/juniors generally have experiences & course work that meets the demand of CARE users would be great to have 1-2 transfer students or veteran students apply Majors that will need more tutors are AE, CEE, CS, ISE, MatSE, NPRE
