Position Description:
Under the supervision of the Dean, Access and Wellness and at the day-to-day coordination with the Behavior and Wellness (BWT) Coordinator, the BWT Social Worker will assess, define, and promote early identification of students in need of social-emotional supports. The BWT Social Worker will assess, plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate the actions required to address barriers preventing academic, behavioral, attendance, and social-emotional success. The BWT Social Worker will not serve in a clinical capacity (i.e., provide psychotherapy to students), but will perform case management duties, facilitate referral access and service utilization, and address any questions or concerns originating from students and/or impacted family members. The BWT Social Worker will assist students who need mental health resources to appropriate on- and off-campus mental health providers.

NOTE: Candidates in possession of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) will be hired as a Licensed Professional and have an hourly rate of $42.

Target Populations to be Served:
The Student Services Division at Mt. San Antonio College serves student populations that experience unique challenges accessing nuanced support. These students require specialized support navigating federal, state, county, and local eligibility criteria to access resources that are oftentimes beyond the capacity of traditional community college programs and personnel. Help-seeking behaviors amongst these student populations can be limited due to the sensitivity of their identities. The ever-changing nature of law and policy can lend itself to unclear eligibility criteria which can negatively impact these students. Thus, access to these resources and services, or lack thereof, often shapes the experiences of students and impacts their academic trajectory, motivation, sense of self-efficacy and hope. The BWT Social Worker will manage action plans to assist students with complex challenges and barriers to their success including special student populations such as foster youth, students with disabilities, undocumented/Dreamer, Black or African American student, students facing basic needs insecurities, LGBTQ+, formally incarcerated, parenting students, Latinx, or first-generation populations to contribute to the overall aim of supporting the holistic well-being of students to foster their success.
